Wow never a dull moment when planets square off. Confusion, upheaval, tension, prevails as volcanoes erupt and the skies cloud over, and our secure little worlds toss and tumble in the great wheel of life.
This tension moves in and out of focus as the planets shift and shimmy. Uranus was exactly opposite Saturn in 2008 when the monetary system first collapsed, and has moved in and out of opposition since then. They are exactly opposite again from today until the 1st of June. With the Pluto square in the mix, Jupiter (amplifies what it touches) is about to blow our minds when it lands in the same spot as Uranus (the awakener) on May 20th th.
Hold onto your hats!!
This will create what is called a Grand Cross or Square; a rare and powerful planetary configuration which heralds changes on a grand scale. I am not even going to pretend I know how it will all manifest. I don’t like predictions. I do know it is all going to culminate mid August, but will be building and releasing all this year. There is also a configuration between Neptune and Pluto that one astrologer …calls the Grand Irrationality. Which means no one knows what’s going to happen; we only know its what the I Ching calls “an exceptional time”.
I can state the obvious…that there’s a lot of pressure out there. And if you believe that the outer reflects the inner…then there is a lot of internal pressure as well. I know of a lot of people having breakdowns or break ups. This can be positive, as what needs to go will go, and a breakdown can become a break through. Doesn’t make it easy though.
This planetary energy is similar to the 60’s when the same planets were in different yet similar relationships and things were definitely in a period of shake down. Remember the Doors song “Break on through to the other side?”
And don’t despair, there is help at hand. Neptune and Chiron have been together since last May, bringing powerful healing to old wounds and revealing our deepest longing. Recently lined up with Jupiter in Aquarius , they called us to recognize our humanity. Now in Pisces, our compassion and our divine nature are being invoked. I would hazard a guess and say these two planets are connected to a higher energy, and therefore inviting us to send healing to each other and to the world. And to ourselves of course (as within so without).
Altogether, everything points to a necessary shift in the paradigm of the collective and the individual.
28. PREPONDERANCE OF THE GREAT.
The ridgepole sags to the breaking point.
It furthers one to have somewhere to go.
The weight of the great is excessive. The load is too heavy for the strength of the supports. The ridgepole, on which the whole roof rests, sags to the breaking point, because its supporting ends are too weak for the load they bear. It is an exceptional time and situation; therefore extraordinary measures are demanded.
It is necessary to find a way of transition as quickly as possible, and to take action. This promises success. For although the strong element is in excess, it is in the middle, that is, at the centre of gravity, so that a revolution is not to be feared. Nothing is to be achieved by forcible measures. The problem must be solved by gently penetration to the meaning of the situation, and then the changeover to other conditions will be successful. It demands real superiority; therefore the time when the great preponderates is a momentous time.
