How much we emotionally invest in the person we perceive ourselves to be dictates how well we can embrace the parts of ourselves that don’t fit that image. If we see ourselves as compassionate, we may ignore our lack of concern for another’s pain.
Saturn squares Uranus three times this year (February, June and December). This square is therefore a defining factor in the events of 2021, especially at a collective and societal level. Saturn is the planet of discipline, calendar time, karma and responsibility.
This new moon alerts us to something we’ve overlooked. It may be that we’ve lost touch with an inner knowing that’s been trying to course-correct us for a while now. Or we may have missed an opportunity to recalibrate a significant relationship and move things in a more constructive direction.
2015 is characterised by an energy markedly different to the ‘norm’ of the past three years. The Uranus/Pluto square which began in 2012 comes to a close in 2015, having made its presence unremittingly felt by so many of us.
Today the Grand Trine in Water reaches exactitude. In fact we have two Grand Trines in Water today, or more than that if you get really picky, but I figure that two involving seven planets and the North Node is enough to be going on with right now! I’ve talked a lot about these water energies in the past week (I apologise if it’s getting boring!), but there’s still more to say.
Events which occur around the time of this eclipse may surprise or catch us unaware, but such is the nature of solar eclipses. They disrupt our malaise and act to insert new experience into our personal timeline.
Today we have a waxing Quarter Moon in Scorpio. At this point in the Moon’s cycle energies are on the increase and we are best focused upon identifying our goals, defining our action plan and getting to grips with the steps needed to get us from here to there.
Chiron is widely known to correspond with the notion of the Wounded Healer. In its archetypal energy we meet that part of us which seems forever in pain, and yet which simultaneously enables us to reach out to others in their suffering.
