Well, we’re finally through the 5 major events of the past week! We’ve now navigated Jupiter square Neptune, Uranus square Pluto, Saturn direct, Venus direct, and the very powerful Sun in Cancer in a T-square with Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. But this doesn’t mean all of these are finished.
Yes, the two planets going direct will now help us gain momentum in all things related to Venus and Saturn, both in the world and in our charts. The problem is with Jupiter square Neptune and Uranus square Pluto. While Jupiter square Neptune is now past, for at least a couple of weeks it will be re-triggered every time the Moon transits either Virgo or Sagittarius.
For example, later today into tonight we have Moon in Sagittarius square Neptune and opposition Jupiter. That requires a lot of clarity and focus, with attention to details and practical work methods. So over the next 12 hours the Moon is re-triggering the Jupiter square Neptune. It will do so again on July 21-22 during its transit of Virgo, but then the energies will be directed toward bringing forth Sagittarius energy to make things whole and balanced.
Uranus square Pluto, while separating for a few weeks, will again be in full force pretty much throughout the Summer into the Autumn, and be very powerful through 2013 and 2014. This square will become a T-square every time the Moon or another planet moves through the early degrees of either Cancer or Libra. That’s why it was triggered by Mercury a couple of weeks ago, and the Sun during the past week.
So when the Moon is in Cancer, it throws the void into Libra. When the Moon is in Libra, it throws the void into Cancer. The voids show either the problem in a situation, the solution, or both. Anytime the Moon is in the early degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn (the Cardinal, activating, or Rajasic signs) it will put the focus on how effectively we’re handling the Uranus square Pluto energies in our lives.
This square is triggered by the Moon in Capricorn July 3-4, 30-31, August 26-27, and September 22-23. It’s triggered by the Moon in Aries July 9-10, August 5-6, Sept 2-3 and 29-30. It’s triggered by the Moon in Cancer July 17-18, August 13-14, and Sept 9-10. It’s triggered by the Moon in Libra July 23-24, August 19-20, and Sep 16-17.
The Uranus square Pluto will be triggered in a very big way when Mars moves through early Libra and makes a T-square on July 17-18-19, and so that means when the Moon is in Cancer on July 17-18 we’ll experience a Grand Cardinal Cross! This is a fragmenting, diffusing energy, where competing forces nullify each other, or get into head butting or tugs of war with each other.
Moon in Cancer, Mars in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn, and Uranus in Aries promises to be a very volatile combination, so take it easy, take nothing for granted, get to the heart of the matter efficiently and fairly, be sensitive to the need of situations and people, and don’t get lost in conflicts with things that aren’t the problem. Caring humanitarianism is favored, as is going to the core of your philosophical/spiritual anchorage in existence and seeing things from that centered view. Of course, with Mars trine Jupiter and Jupiter sextile Uranus, inventiveness is favored, as is going in new innovative directions.
Other times Uranus square Pluto will be triggered are August 15-16, when Venus moves through the Cancer zone and finalizes what we learned, saw, or got hints about when Mercury went through the square a couple of weeks ago that was vitalized by the Sun over the last week. (That link takes you to where you can see if it impacts your specific generation.)
In a similar vein, when Mercury moves through early Libra on Sept 20-21 it will bring messages and understanding related to the Mars T-square in mid-July, and when the Sun triggers the T-square from Libra on Sept 29-30 at the Full Moon, you can bet it’ll set a lot of revolution into motion! It will definitely power up whatever events are indicated by the Mars T-square in mid-July.
During all of these periods there will be other aspects that either mitigate the effects of these squares, or help us develop and/or stabilize in other areas during the time of these squares. T-squares help us integrate the energies or get “hung up on a cross” through being unable to deal with these squares and oppositions in a healthy or productive way. Generally, as long as we can manage to express healthy Cancer and Libra energies during the next few years, we’ll do as well as possible in the midst of the larger collective meltdown and massive collisions pitting past against future, control versus autonomy, manipulation and freedom.
Just a few things to keep in mind during the next 13 weeks. It’s going to be a VERY dynamic season!!
