Been on the road for almost 2 weeks, and about to join the Gathering of Eagles in Northern New Mexico in a few days. The Sun just entered Leo on Friday in the Western Hemisphere, and is now in orb of a triseptile to Pluto, coming off the quincunx to Neptune and thus making a triseptile to it as well.
As most of you who have been reading this column know, the Grand Irrationality is set into motion each time a planet moves through any of the 7 "hot zones" where conjunctions, septiles, biseptiles, or triseptiles are made to Neptune or Pluto, the anchors of the configuration. Right now the Sun is passing through the early Leo zone, with Venus about to transit that zone as well in a week or so.
Each time it's triggered, we confront choices and changes in our potential destiny. As the Sun represents the Light/Life that shines in a steady manner throughout the year, illuminating each point of the zodiac in our chart, when the Sun triggers the Grand Irrationality we can see the light of past choices that created our present "destiny," and/or see the light of current choices creating our future.
At this time in history, the 7 "hot zones" of the Grand Irrationality are around 5-9 Capricorn, 29 Aquarius-3 Pisces, 20-24 Aries, 11-15 Gemini, 2-6 Leo, 23-27 Virgo, and 14-18 Scorpio. If you have a planet in these degree zones, expect to confront important choices and "forks in the road of destiny" in that area of your life, as well as the houses that planet rules.
So over the next few days, remember that this is a time of light/life putting some decisions on our plates that will have important implications down the road. It's certainly true in my own situation, as well as the situations of quite a few others I know. Be clear about your nobility, your authorship, your dominion, your fruitfulness, and what makes your "realm" prosper. Be a good ruler of your domain, and you will see the light of peace and power come forth.
On a final note for today, due to the last Full Moon, we also have another major configuration of a non-rational nature that has been setting important choices and changes into motion involving the Moon, Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn. These were all in septile series forming aspects to each other, making for 4 points of a 7 Pointed Star, creating major forks in the road wherever these fall and rule in our charts.
As I mentioned in part 2 of this past Full Moon, specific hot zones activated in our charts are 7-9 Taurus, 28-30 Gemini, 19-21 Leo, 11-13 Libra, 2-4 Sagittarius, 23-25 Capricorn, and 15-17 Pisces. Wherever the Full Moon at 23 Capricorn fell in our chart has been the focus of some critical choices, and affects the house affairs where we have Cancer on the cusp. The house involving transiting Mercury at 19 Leo at that Full Moon will be where we are finding crucial insights or information that affects the houses where we have Gemini and Virgo on the cusp.
The same concepts hold true for Jupiter and Saturn. Where they are transiting is where we're getting a broader vision or a greater truth (Jupiter) and new responsibilities or a sense of purpose (Saturn.) As Saturn rules the Moon in the last Lunation, that particular biseptile is very powerful, and would indicate some major personality choices around parts of our life where they're transiting.
As I mentioned earlier, it has certainly been true for me. This period, though there are no dramatic transit to transit aspects going on, is very important in determining our future, wherever these "fork in the road" choices and changes are happening. Choose wisely and well, since destiny is on the move!
To refresh you about this period we're in right now, here are the 2 articles on the past Full Moon:
