Given that this is truly an important point in our space-time reality, I thought I would do a little more research on the outer planet conjunctions to the Galactic Center. First, more on possible meanings and influences of this point at late Sagittarius. It is said to be a major source of motivation, aspiration, and the "gravitational energy" in our Milky Way Galaxy. I have also read that it accompanies "otherworldly" feelings and galactic experiences, The late degrees of Sagittarius also have other significance. To learn more about important points in our history when this point was activated, read on.
We are told that the GC was at 26 Sag 52 in 2000, and working back through the centuries we find it at the following approximate points: 26 Sag 31 in 1975, 26 Sag 10 in 1950, 25 Sag 49 in 1925, 25 Sag 28 in 1900, 25 Sag 07 in 1875, 24 Sag 46 in 1850, 24 Sag 25 in 1825, 24 Sag 04 in 1800, 23 Sag 43 in 1775, 23 Sag 22 in 1750, 23 Sag 01 in 1725, and 22 Sag 40 in 1700.
In researching the web, I found this: "In 1932, Karl Jansky, a Bell Telephone Laboratories engineer, was searching for the source of static affecting overseas telephone lines. To find the source he built the first 95 foot movable radio- telescope to detect it. Part of the static turned out to be created by the center of our Galaxy at 26 degrees of Sagittarius. Astronomers paid little attention to the discovery, but to the astrology of consciousness, this discovery should rank right up there with the discovery of Pluto in 1930.
In the late 1960's, astronomers finally honed in on the GC (Galactic Center) with radio and infrared instruments. They were astounded by the immense energies to be found there. A huge Black Hole is thought to be at the center, about the size of a large star, but containing the mass of four million suns. The staggering amount of material being drawn into the black hole radiates energy at many frequencies."
Before now, Pluto was last on the GC between February-May 1758, December 1758-January 1759, and June-November 1759, at 24 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn January-February 1762 and June-December 1962.
Neptune was on the GC twice in this span. The first time was February-June 1817, December 1817-January 1818, and June-November 1818, at 25 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn February-June 1820, December 1820-January 1821, and July-November 1821. The more recent time was January-June 1982, November-December 1982, January 1983, and July-November 1983 at 27 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn most recently January-February 1984, May-June 1984, November-December 1984.
Uranus was on the GC 4 times in this span. The first time was February-May 1735, December 1735-January 1736, August-October 1736, at 24 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn January 1737-June 1737 and November-December 1737. The second time was February-June 1819 and November-December 1819 at 25 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn January 1821, June-July 1821, and October-November 1821.
The third time was February-May 1903 and December 1903 at 26 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn December 1904-January 1905 and July-October 1905. The most recent transit of Uranus over the Galactic Center was February-June 1987 and November-December 1987 at 27 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn February-May 1988 and December 1988.
Saturn has been on the GC 9 times in this span, including 2 important conjunctions on the GC with Jupiter and 1 with Uranus. The first time Saturn was on the GC during this span was January 1723 during the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction setting a new 20 year cycle into motion on this important point, and later that year in August-October 1723 at 24 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn December 1723. The second time Saturn hit the GC was in 1752 between February-June and in November, also at 24 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn January 1753.
The third time Saturn was on the Galactic Center during this span was at another Jupiter-Saturn conjunction around April-May 1782. Jupiter was exactly on the GC that year in February, June, and October, while Saturn was exactly on the GC in December 1781 and August-September 1782. Saturn was at 1 Capricorn March-May 1782, and both Jupiter and Saturn were again at 1 Capricorn in November 1782.
The next time Saturn was on the GC was December 1840 at 25 Sagittarius, and it danced at 1 Capricorn in February, June, and November 1841. It again conjuncted the GC in 1870 in January-February, Jun-Jul, and October-November at 26 Sagittarius. That year it entered Capricorn December 1870. The next visit was brief, in December 1899 at 26 Sagittarius. It spent time at 1 Capricorn January, July, and October 1900.
Saturn again conjuncted the GC in January and July-October 1929 at 26 Sagittarius. It was at 1 Capricorn March-May 1929 and November 1929. It entered its present degree of 27 Sagittarius in March-May 1958 and November-December 1958, and most lately December 1987, January 1988, and August-September 1988. Saturn was at 1 Capricorn in January 1959 and August-October 1959, and February 1988, May-June 1988, and November 1988.
It was during this 1988 transit that it also conjuncted Uranus all year long, a very significant contact whose influence will last through May-June 2032, when they will again conjunct opposite the GC in Gemini. Any time the outer planets conjunct each other, it sets long-term cycles into motion that affect the entire world. With Saturn conjunct Uranus, we can expect new forms and structures (Saturn) for the on-going larger forces of change that are individualizing each of us and all of us (Uranus).
The critical turning points in the larger cycle that began in 1988 when they conjuncted at the Galactic Center were at the lower square of Saturn to that point in March 1996, the opposition to the GC point in August 2002, November-December 2002, and April-May 2003. Saturn will upper (waning) square the GC in September-October 2009 and May-June 2010. This is a significant time due to the accompanying Uranus waxing square the GC conjunction point at 27 Pisces between April-September 2009, February-April 2010, and October 2010-February 2011. January 2011 features a significant Jupiter-Uranus conjunction at 28 Pisces, also important in releasing energies symbolized by this cycle.
On a final note, Pluto slips into 1 Capricorn January-June and November-December 2008, and again August-October 2009. There is a very powerful Saturn square Pluto from in effect from September 2009 through October 2010, the exact aspect falling from 2 Libra to Capricorn November 2009, 5 Libra to Capricorn January-February 2010, and 3 Libra to Capricorn August 2010. I'll explore the possible meanings, manifestations, and how these will affect each of us personally and collectively in future articles.
All of this portends major Earth and societal changes, since these squares are part of a larger transpersonal spiritual T-square of Jupiter conjunct Uranus at 1 Aries in June 2010, Jupiter square Pluto and Mars conjunct Saturn both opposed Jupiter conjunct Uranus July-August 2010, Jupiter squares Pluto in February-March 2011, and Mars squares Pluto, conjuncts Jupiter, and opposes Saturn March-April 2011, after which a very long series of Uranus-Pluto squares begins. Revolutonary times are upon us indeed, which I touched on in this post on this important period leading us all to a rendezvous with destiny in 2012.
Here are three articles written in October 2007 that go into considerable detail about the squares and oppositions coming in the next few years.
