A reader asked me what it meant that the recent New Moon in Libra fell conjunct their Pluto. That got me to thinking, and you know what that means....
While forming the answer to the query, I realized that at certain points in the year, a series of New Moons and Full Moons in fact do stimulate many of the "generational planets" in our charts. Whether Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto, there are a sequence of Lunations that trigger these outer, invisible, "transpersonal" energies, allowing us to face spiritual lessons that evolve us in major ways.
To cite the example that inspired this article, the recent New Moon at 25 Libra put the focus on the Pluto for everyone with that planet in the latter part of Libra (late 1977-late 1984). Also, it conjuncted the Neptune of all those born throughout most of the 1950s, and the Uranus of those born in in 1972-1975.
When the outer Spiritual Invisibles are accented at a given point in time, then we learn about how to understand and manifest that function more perfectly.
The recent Lunation focuses the need for purification, transformation, transmutation, and if necessary, annihilation of all that is toxic for those whose Pluto function is stimulated. It focuses the need for inspiration, idealism, collective awareness, and compassion in all with Neptune in late Libra. It focuses the need for individuation, renovation, and revolution in the lives of those with Uranus in late Libra.
Taking that one step further, it also implies that during this time in history, the Summer and Autumn Lunations (especially the New Moons) are very important since they stimulate the outer Spiritual planets in large groups of people. And yes, to some extent it also happens at the Full Moons when the Sun is opposite the signs of our natal outer planets.
Still, each year when there is a lunation in Cancer, during those weeks it's in effect it focuses the energies on those with Pluto in Cancer (1913-1939), Neptune in Cancer (almost no one left alive!), and Uranus in Cancer (1949-1956). We can apply the same planetary energies as above, but through the Cancer filter. How early or late it falls in the sign determines which end of these generations are most affected.
Each year when we have a Lunation in Leo, during those weeks when it's in effect it impacts the Pluto in Leo group (1938-1958), the Neptune in Leo group (1914-1929), and the Uranus in Leo group (1955-1962). How early or late it falls in the sign determines which end of these generations are most affected.
Each year when we have a Lunation in Virgo, during those weeks when it's in effect it impacts the Pluto in Virgo group (1956-1972), Neptune in Virgo group (1929-1942), and Uranus in Virgo group (1961-1969). As with the other signs, how early or late it falls in the sign determines which end of these generations are most affected,
I've already discussed the late Libra groups above, so they're taken care of for this year. Early Libra groups fall just after the Virgo dates and before the late Libra dates. To note, should next year's New Moon fall earlier in the sign, then the groups born before the dates given above will be most impacted.
We have a Lunation in Scorpio on the way. This will stimulate the Pluto of all those born 1984-1995, the Neptunes of those born 1956-1970, and the Uranus of those born 1974-1981. If the lunation falls early in the sign, those born at the front end of the span are most impacted. If the lunation falls late in the sign, those born at the end of the sign are most impacted.
What the Sun illuminates in the Autumn for these generations, the Moon will give form to in the times when the Full Moon is conjunct the outer planets of these generations the first half of these years.
Just a few musings as the Grand Irrationality continues, the Great Transition accelerates, Jupiter opposes the Plutos of all on Earth, and the centrifuge of Saturn opposition Uranus spins faster and faster......
