If you’ve been wondering why the news is so HEAVY these days, and it seems like major decisions must be made as things go to extremes, welcome to Jupiter biseptile Saturn!!
Jupiter is now at 4 Leo, and will be at 7 Leo by mid-month. Saturn is now at 17 Scorpio, and will be at 18 Scorpio by Aug 10. A biseptile is an angle of 102d 51m degrees between two planets. That means for the past week and for the next 2 weeks, Jupiter is biseptile Saturn.
These are heavy socio-cultural planets, showing both growth and limitation, possibilities and the ability to bind these in forms. They are where the limits of imagination meet the need for structured, organized endeavor. It also shows that Divine Mercy and Divine Understanding are at a turning point relative to each other.
All the planets make septiles, biseptiles, and triseptiles to all the other planets at various points in time, and these mark important turning points in time where “destiny” is created. In this case, the world is at a turning point between expansive Heart Fire and the binding force of ancient Ice. Where love and death meet, we find worlds in upheaval.
These times are especially important in the lives of those who also have planets in the zones that make any septile series aspect to any of the planets in play. This particular set of zones include 15-19 Scorpio, 7-11 Capricorn, 29 Aquarius-3 Pisces, 21-25 Aries, 12-16 Gemini, 3-7 Leo, and 24-28 Virgo.
Of note is that the sequence of biseptiles from early Leo to Saturn began with the Sun making the aspect between July 24-29, immediately followed by Jupiter from then to mid-August. We get a Mercurial set of triggers between Aug 1-3, and Venusian influences between Aug 13-17, around the time Jupiter finishes its run. So the Mercury and Venus conjunctions with Jupiter make the biseptile.
That will make for an interesting year ahead for those affected! For some, it could show as breaking out, breaking free, or breaking through to a more effective life, or a new strength or heart power. Having purified all that is no longer needed, beginning late August we can feel a real sense of having completed a life chapter while also finding a deep transfigured state of Being.
Septiles, biseptiles, and triseptiles are all non-rational aspects, and have a variety of possible effects depending on individual circumstances. They all bring points of decision that alter the course of the live of individuals and nations. Remember here that transit to transit aspects are generic for the world, and each responds according to where the aspects fall in the houses, and what houses are ruled by the planets making the aspect.
Because of where these biseptiles happen, this very heavy period of septile-driven events is directly related to “The Grand Irrationality.” The current zones of that long-term configuration are approximately 12-16 Capricorn, 4-8 Pisces, 26-30 Aries, 17-21 Gemini, 8-12 Leo, 29 Virgo-3 Libra, and 20-24 Scorpio. You can see that the current Leo-Scorpio biseptile hot zones are just before the Grand irrationality sequence of degree zones.
That means the first set of energies is triggered, then the Grand Irrationality. The Sun biseptiled Saturn in late July, and is now triggering the Grand Irrationality through August 4. Mercury is currently biseptile Saturn, and will trigger the Grand Irrationality August 4-6. Major events, followed by Neptune and Pluto transpersonal influences.
It’s like a “set up” and “delivery” type of pulse. The changes we’re going through now will be “answered” during the various points the Grand Irrationality is triggered. However, due to the angle between Neptune and Pluto, they are not triggered simultaneously, but first one, then the other, after a slight time lag.
For example, right now a planet at 6-8 Leo triseptiles Pluto but quincunxes Neptune. By the time it hits 9-12 Leo, it’s triseptile Neptune but quincunx Pluto. This is not the same as when simultaneous triseptiles are formed to both Neptune and Pluto when the Moon is in early Leo in the months between October and April.
So Jupiter will be anchoring the Grand Irrationality between mid-August and mid-September, putting the entire configuration into constant effect via other transits. Notable points are the end of August and beginning of September, since Mercury will occupy the late Virgo/early Libra zone, and Mars will transit the Scorpio zone, anticipating Saturn’s transit through the Scorpio zone in September, October, and early November. Of course the Moon will trigger it several times during late August and early September.
A brief note on the Grand Irrationality. Long time readers know that I’ve given the term “The Grand Irrationality” to the effects associated with the Neptune septile Pluto that’s been active since the early 90s. It’s triggered 7 times every month by the Moon, and at least 21 times every 12 months via the inner planets.
This is a major backdrop to the general weirdness and hard edge to what’s been going on the past 20 years. I believe future historians will look back at the period of 1993-2018 as an era when some pretty crazy things were happening and humanity was behaving in some incredibly irrational and compulsive ways before the Era began to end between 2015-2020. This period really is a time when humanity is being forced to wake up, and is already dealing with consequences of its choices, past and present. The future will look much different than the past 20 years that has led to the current chaos in the world.
We’re already beginning to feel the influence wane during part of the year since between May and September Neptune and Pluto are too wide to be in septile. By October they’ll be back within orb, so the configuration will be fully focused by transits from October through April. I’ll compose more about the Grand Irrationality in coming weeks, and update older articles explaining it in greater detail than I can here.
Anyway, in case you hadn’t noticed, it’s a very heavy time! And it’s just the beginning of a fairly wild ride for the next few weeks. The roller coaster left the landing about a week ago, and has just hit the first plunge!
Enjoy the ride, feel the heart Fire, cultivate courage, and if things don’t make sense, well, they don’t have to. And of course, some compulsions are more harmless than others, so cut yourself some slack. Just remember that the heart is a muscle, and benefits by being exercised in loving ways.
