We're now in the heart of the Cardinal T-square made by Jupiter conjunct Uranus at the first and second degrees of Aries, Pluto at 5 Capricorn, and the Sun moving through the squares and opposition from early Cancer. This will be followed by Mercury moving from late Gemini into early Cancer in the next few days.
This period is marked by Gemini squares to Saturn in late Virgo moving into squares to Jupiter and Uranus in early Aries. The squares to Saturn are waning, or "upper" squares, showing the culmination point to our Saturn in Virgo lessons.
It most affects those with planets in late Pisces, late Gemini, late Virgo, and late Sagittarius. These should not be regarded as challenges, but as opportunities to bring old fears, limitations, obligations, and duties to rest. It's also where we demonstrate the skills we've trained for during the Saturn in Virgo era now passing.
These are the last squares to Saturn in Virgo by the inner planets. They give us clues as to how we will have to act when the oppositions from the inner planets in Virgo oppose Jupiter and Uranus retrograding through Pisces this Autumn.
The current waxing, or "lower" squares to Aries from Cancer are emergent possibilities to demonstrate the opportunities, vision, expansion, and/or genius indicated by Jupiter conjunct Uranus. This could be considered a crisis of new beginnings, where we reorient toward the new energies already coming to fore via the Aries planets.
This most affects those with planets in early Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. These emergent squares should produce some forms of "seed awareness" as the oppositions to Pluto in Capricorn become partile (exact). All of this is happening over the next week, so be aware of what is beginning to move, what is repolarizing, what requires elimination, and what is crashing.
This time is particularly important in us learning a new perspective, a new sense of proportion, and a new rhythm of anchoring the ideal we were shown between November 2009 and March 2010. This is the point when we find a new balance or new way to orient toward our new archetype of being.
This period will bring new mobilization of emotional energies to release "karmic adjustments" that will acquire form in August and September. Those forms are the structures for all that will cut loose in 2011.
As Cancer is "active defense," see what needs nurture and/or protecting with an eye to the future. Secure what you need while eliminating old structures that no longer serve that future. Mobilize, assert, activate while curbing recklessness.
Act on behalf of your family, your tribe, your sources of supply, and enjoy the transition from the Saturn in Virgo era to the threshold of the coming Saturn in Libra era. These squares and oppositions from Cancer offer us the opportunity to demonstrate what we glimpsed back when Saturn was in Libra, and by how we demonstrate that energy we use our feelings to anchor the future patterns. The future is coming faster than we suspect.
