Along with Mercury opposition Neptune, hold on as we all take a white water ride and find clarity amidst the chaos!
Any of these aspects alone would indicate fairly dramatic events, and taken together it's a pretty wild time. I certainly have things going in my own life that perfectly reflect this extraordinary polarization and "turning the corner" type of energy.
I've written extensively about the title configurations in previous articles. Please go back through the archives to find more. In any case, it's a fairly major "hammering into shape" for all of us, and for me at least, a time of getting very, very clear about who I used to be, who I am, who I'm not, and what I am and am not willing to put up with. (And my Saturn return is over!)
Clarity about one's higher destiny and role to play on the world stage, whether large or small, is necessary if we are to live an authentic life. As Saturn is now at the critical first degree of Libra, the archetypes are being made manifest, for good or ill. As I've written, this is the cosmic moment of Divine Initiation into a greater life and reality for those of us who have prepared during Saturn in Virgo.
With Jupiter square Pluto, coercive and dishonest elements are in the air. Beware of people and situations that are unfair, cruel, out of balance, or potentially explosive. Remember to keep it honest, open, and above board regarding your best interests, and stay focused on accomplishing what you can despite unstable conditions.
This energy is in the air for awhile, so persevere and keep your wits about you in the midst of this very volatile time. Just because someone may accuse you of something does not make it true. Remember your higher agenda, and don't worry about what others think as long as you're taking the high road.
Saturn opposition Uranus, as I've written before, is a cosmic clash between titans of authority. This is the final spin of the centrifuge that has been flinging us away from some people and circumstances, and flinging us toward other people and circumstances. This is leaving us in a purified state so we can move cleanly and clearly into the new archetype of Being symbolized by Saturn.
Stay focused on your individuality as it has been shaped by your experience, and do not yield your autonomy to another's coercions, challenges, or bullying. For some it may be necessary to retreat or go into an introverted state. At times it's the height of wisdom to withdraw so as not to waste energy with intransigent or argumentative people.
Get clear about the stages of how something has developed or is developing, and stay clear about the role you want to play. Don't let another's cat and mouse games to seduce you into believing your role is anything other than to be your highest Self, and find your nobility that enables you to see your life from a broader context.
We're all coming out of some sort of cocoon, with the possibility of seeing things previously obscured. This is the "hour of Divine decision." Soon a whole new reality will be in motion for everyone beginning with the impending Mars conjunct Saturn also at the critical first degree of Libra. Then, as Saturn moves deeper into Libra, our ideal or archetype will acquire solidity as we find a new rhythm of life and a more perfect way to live.
