A note on the Planetary Nodes: The nodes of the slower-moving planets from Jupiter to Pluto move extremely slowly, about one degree every 72 years. Their position varies only slightly in the course of the Sun cycle 1 year , meaning that they essentially remain in the same position for all of humanity. We can anticipate important changes in the natural resources industry, the banking system, and regional and world leadership, but it is difficult at this point to anticipate what direction this powerful influence will take. Of course, the U.
We understand that the initial intention of the Saturn—Pluto conjunction is to increase value and empower systems, but it is easy to mismanage these influences because they demand high ethical leadership, and therefore we must consider the prospect of a severe economic recession. At worst, with Mars in Aries retrograding later in and squaring the Saturn—Pluto conjunction, serious political conflicts and even a global war are possible. We can expect rebellion on both the individual level people leaving their workplace, reinventing themselves and the collective level worldwide protests demanding change.
In light of growing separatist sentiment in the US, we may see the secession movement gaining greater momentum. With the later transit of Mars in Aries squaring all the Capricorn planets, it is not far-fetched to anticipate that Greece may split off from the Union. Jupiter catching up to conjoin Pluto in April adds more momentum and drama to these influences. The giant and the dwarf planets may seem quite different from each other, but both of them represent an aspiration for growth and prosperity.

Jupiter—Pluto cycles work on both the material level, where they increase ambition for greater abundance and development, and the spiritual level, where they reflect a deep yearning for Truth. Pluto inevitably represents a need to explore the shadows of any issue it becomes involved with, so on the path toward creating abundance and growth, Pluto may also pop many Jupiterian bubbles or excesses, and cause sharp fluctuations between inflation and deflation. In a positive way, Jupiter—Pluto cycles reflect a remarkable ability to transform difficulty into opportunity, both individually and collectively.
This cycle occurs in signs of the same element three consecutive times, then changes to the following element, and then reverts to the previous element one last time.
For example, in , the conjunction was in the earth sign of Virgo; in , in the earth sign of Taurus; in , in the earth sign of Capricorn; in , in the air sign of Libra; and then a last return to earth, the conjunction in Taurus. From , this conjunction will occur in similar sequence in air signs.
The new conjunction will take place at the solstice on December 21, , at the beginning degree of Aquarius and in a new sequence of elements air , so we can anticipate that the combination of the conjunction, in a new Air cycle, on the Solstice point will seed a new dawn, a new paradigm for humanity to unfold. The sign of Aquarius flavoring this cycle hints at the need to come up with new solutions and elevate global consciousness. While the earlier earth cycle drew attention to practical and financial matters, the Aquarius cycle will ideally bring a stronger focus on culture, progress, and global emancipation.
Let us be even more optimistic and contemplate progress in the form of a greater mainstream tolerance of astrology and recognition of it as an essential practice. The shift from the Taurus cycle to the Aquarius cycle of Jupiter—Saturn may prompt people to look up to the heavens more often! If we contemplate the whole sequence of astrological events in the year , with its dramatic planetary alignments, we can anticipate great intensity and changes on many levels. These events will likely have a destructive edge as a new world order is programmed — change is not always a smooth process.
There is a promise of rebirth and a new vision that will gradually unfold in the following months and years.

Your insight is very unique. As well, I am a tantric practitioner whose skills are recently at a point of heightening receptivity to the clients who come for healing. I find it interesting that you mention tantric energy in your article. You have done a very nice job of summarizing the astrological implications of the Grand Sextile pattern and its history.
It was this precise timing of the Eclipse, which occurred at the exact same moment anywhere in the world, that 1 made it so unique that there was not another like it found in a 6, year search from 2, BCE to 4, CE and 2 allowed for a single moment of focus that became the world wide celebration of many of the same energies that you attribute to the Star of David Seal of Solomon pattern.
And I apologize for my typo, if you read much on this blog you will see that with my Gemini ascendant it is all too common an occurrence. I will include your comments in the post. Ah, yes…another Gemini Ascendant. Do we all have Dyslexia? Thanks so much for your postings and the generous comments. BTW, do you think that a 10th Anniversary celebration would garner any attention?
I meditated that day for about half an hour. I felt good energy coming in my crown chakra. Then later around 5 or 6 i felt like half of my soul was ripped out and grieved for several hours. What was that all about? I had similar experience Lori. I meditated then just collapsed in tears. Next day my heart was filled with immense gratitude. I also realized I wss taking someone for granted.
Echoing the Grand Sextile that occurred just a month ago, this alignment merges the powerful force of conflict and crisis […]. Similarity to Harmonic Concordance The Harmonic Concordance that occurred on November 8, was considered a portal to awakened consciousness. The Harmonic Concordance featured the same combination of planetary alignments as the July 29th Grand Sextile: Two interlocking grand trines degree angles in water and earth signs. Two oppositions degree angle. A hexagon of sextiles 60 degree angles forming a Grand Sextile. However, when these energies combine and work well together, what can emerge is the passion to fight for justice and fairness.
This is "the fisted hand in the velvet glove," and can create situations in which you must respond more like a charming but crafty ambassador than a brute force boxer. On the other hand, with force, aggression and directness somewhat blocked or unavailable as options, it may be difficult to respond decisively or purposefully to conflict and challenge. You need to rely more on your wits than your impulses, and strive for a win-win solution than a clear victory. If you're not sure if this applies to you, check the change dates for your location on DateAndTime.
When the Sun squares the Lunar Nodes, your sense of purpose and identity appear to be in conflict with the lessons you need to learn in life. It may feel like you're forced to take a detour around your direct route to your destination whatever that might be. This may only be true on the surface — if you look deeper at the situation or possibly in retrospect , you'll probably find that your sense of self is actually helped by the benefits that you are able to get on that detour, which would have missed if you hadn't been diverted from your original path.
Alternatively, you might be confronted by a conflict or stressful dilemma that you usually resist or flail against. This may be an opportunity to explore a deeper level of your experience and feelings. Perhaps there is fear or resentment or defiance behind your reaction. This is a chance to try on a different perspective and respond in a different way that can help you move through the situation instead of just being blocked by it. When the Sun squares the Nodes it is sometimes called "Moon Wobbles," which is a bit of a misnomer. The Moon itself doesn't wobble or even necessarily interact directly with either the Nodes or the Sun.
Rather, the Moon part of us the inner, feeling, intuitive, sensitive part of us may feel a bit "wobbly" or unsteady when the Sun squares the Nodes. The "Moon Wobble" effects are said to build and dissipate for up to 10 days before and after the Sun-Node square is exact. This is a wakeup call! You are asked to open your mind so that you can see something about your life, yourself or your situation that has eluded you until now. It might be a shocking revelation that changes your whole perspective However it manifests, you are in a position to see your situation more clearly and objectively — although this can also make it seem like this energy is outside of you and happening TO you.
However, if you look closely inside yourself, you may see thoughts, perceptions and impressions that correspond to the external events and participate in the interchange. Emails, Internet chats, and interaction with technology may be part of this transit as well. Communication may be a bit erratic or unpredictable, so be careful not to speak thoughtlessly or carelessly.
However, you may find that words and perceptions come to you intuitively and spontaneously. It is necessary for you to come to grips with limitations, boundaries or expectations. If you have been avoiding some task or obligation, this transit might bring consequences from that avoidance or a warning of consequences to come. You might also encounter a situation that requires you to accept unwanted responsibility or restricts your freedom in some way.

You might be faced with some part of your life being pruned back, either to rein in something that is out of control or to make room for new growth. This is likely to be more or less stressful depending on how comfortable you are dealing with responsibility, authority, limits and hard work. If you have a hard time with authority issues, you might find yourself in conflict with someone in authority under this transit — perhaps in part because your buttons are getting pushed.
On the other hand, this could also be a time when you are challenged to take action or make a decision that involves taking on more responsibility. It is also a time when you may have to find better ways to deal with personal boundaries — accepting others' or learning to assert your own.
You're bumping up against reality, so try to work constructively with it, not hurl yourself against it. Venus is the planet of relationships, interaction, beauty, pleasure and material resources. She struts through Scorpio with attitude! As a result, we may experience sensuality, sexuality and intimacy in a more intense, in-your-face kind of way. You might feel the need to establish a better balance of power with others that is pleasant and even-handed on the surface but also deals with the more gritty or intense energy that tends to lurk under the surface.
It may be easier to attract what or who you want now, by focusing your intent and interest on the object of your affection and desire. However, there can also be a danger of becoming manipulative, controlling or devious to get what you want. Strive to become centred in your deepest heart's desire through steadfast self-honesty. Aim to avoid becoming obsessed with power, wealth or lust so that you lose sight of your true light inside. This is a good transit to take joy in your instinctive nature.

Weakness or chronic problems in health may flare up now, especially if you are under a lot of stress. It will help to do whatever is necessary to support and take care of yourself. You may find it works better to minimize or prevent deterioration, rather than to attempt a complete cure of whatever ails you.
Emotional health may also be affected, bringing out latent issues related to anger, sexuality, assertiveness or courage. This is a time when you can probably see all these problem areas more clearly, and as a result it can seem like they are getting worse. While this may or may not actually be true, you are in a position to respond to these issues in a different way now — precisely because you are able to see the nature of the problems more objectively and clearly.
So don't allow yourself to just be intimidated by difficult experiences you might have now; use them to take steps toward a new well-being. During its retrograde cycle, Mercury travels through the same span of the Zodiac three times called the Shadow. The first time through, it is going in direct motion moving forward , then retrograde looks like it's going backwards , and then direct again. This means there is a more extensive process of development and change involved with things that Mercury influences—ideas, thoughts, frame of mind and mental focus. It also concerns the collection, exchange, analysis and organisation of information.
All forms of communication are also affected. This includes not just talking, but also email and snail mail, the Internet, the media in general, books and magazines, as well as public transit buses, trains, etc. The situations developing over the next couple of weeks leading up to when Mercury actually goes retrograde will likely require further research, deeper consideration and adjustments to unexpected discoveries over the next couple of months. Expect changes in your plans, increasingly disrupted communication, and new information coming to light that may not fit conveniently into your plans.
It's wise to leave lots of extra time to do things, to plan future projects and get to wherever you're going. Patience is a valuable quality during this time. If you must make important decisions during this time, try to build some flexibility into your plans to allow for later changes—or if possible, you may want to delay final or irrevocable decisions until well after Mercury goes direct. Today, and up to a couple of days before and after, things can feel like they're starting to make sense. What you read, hear and observe may seem more obvious and your ability to put this into words could flow more easily.
You might identify and figure out how to utilize the tools, skills, assets and ideas that could bring you further down the road toward whatever destination you're pointed toward. However, a reality check about how wise it might be to act on these ideas and benefits is still a good idea. Write down good ideas to follow up with later. Relationships, social interaction, material resources and emotional balance may be a bit unpredictable or unstable around this time, as Uranus the Awakener sounds a wake-up gong in these areas.
You may be more inclined to act out of character, to experiment or be reckless in relationship, social or financial matters, which could be liberating or disturbing, exciting or upsetting. Circumstances or other people might create a situation in which you are forced to respond in an unusual or unfamiliar way. The idea behind this energy is to become more flexible and more open to a broader vision of what is possible in those areas.
There may be weak spots in the affected areas which this transit illuminates by creating problems, so that they can be repaired and strengthened, or else broken and released so that new opportunities can come in. Trust the process and keep your eyes open to seeing new truth and insight. This is a time when your understanding of the Big Picture and your place within it has the potential to click into place.
