The configuration of the past few weeks, the Cardinal Grand Cross could be operating for some folks. Mars at 16 Libra is opposed to Uranus at 8 Aries, squared by the midpoint of Sun-Venus and Pluto and Jupiter on the other hand.
This new configuration emerging, to replace the old conflicts is the Sun-Venus opposed to Jupiter structure. Jupiter is retrograde in Cancer: With wisdom we can heal emotional wounds. I give credit for this insight to Jeff Jawer at http://www.stariq.com
The Sun-Venus conjunction in Capricorn allows for comfort and stability, associated with a strong parental figure a figure in political life, and also could be a corrupting influence, as Venus enjoys playfulness less than truthfulness. The ideal is pure, simple, straightforward, a clear view of situations. With Saturn exact sextile to the pair from Scorpio, finality, stability of character is added, perhaps a regeneration (Pluto) of past experience with Venus also moving retrograde.
The situation grows very interesting as it is compounded, increased or magnified and enhanced by Jupiter in Cancer opposing the midpoint of the pair (Sun -Venus) and Pluto in Capricorn. This scissor effect in fact brings the Pluto into the mix and gives the whole affair an aura of intensity, and universality and transformative in it’s widest outreach and context. (See the accompanying chart graphic.)
Abundance is attainable by the masses, as we learn about abundance blocks from Christy Marie Sheldon and how to clear, erase and delete those early concepts about money and how it affects your life in various ways. Its a very a effective session, and timely in its appearance now, under this signature of Jupiter retrograde in Cancer, actually opposing Pluto and the Sun-Venus conjunction. (see the ads for MindValley.com on the Internet. I recommend that we all get connected for the free training.)
Looking again at my charts, I can see that Mars in Libra is actually at a square aspect to the opposition of Jupiter and the planets in Capricorn. This is an opportunity for the individual to transform his or her life, and relate to wealth on a new level by clearing ideas that were impressed on you as a child. Knowingly or unaware, our parents taught us what money is about. Society and experience has modified it, but the basic imprint is important to recall and to erase, as it no longer applies to your life today.
We are protected in part, by the grand cross, a widely existing structure that has weakened over the past few days, and may still be effective for some people.
Monday January 13 – Mercury moved into Aquarius on Sunday. Communication and mental activity can be less on the defensive, becoming stabilized and cohesive to groups of like-minded individuals. The Moon in Gemini, moves into a trine with Mars in Libra, giving us reflection of issues that are necessary to deal with today. We can feel trapped or energized to find solutions. We are trying to find solutions to redefine our everyday relation to limitations that exist, and to transcend those limitations. We may try to redefine ourselves, or our cultural values. Saturn is protective of the Venus -Sun energy, giving more strength to combat whatever fate dishes out. Preparedness is the clue.
If you take the initiative to confront opponents today, be wary of sounding too aggressive. Be wise and open to a compromise.
Tuesday January 14 – We can appreciate home more now, or the security issues and parental roles impact our lives. The Moon transits Jupiter in Cancer, and we can feel comfortable , maybe we are influenced by mass media, TV prime time or national news broadcasts, whatever it is, it draws us in numbers, mass media gets us together more and more. Hearts and minds might be won as we snuggle closer for security or protection. Maybe just for a good family gathering before the old TV set. We can experience action, pain and fear all at once over the home entertainment theater. 10 PM EST or 6PM PST. And the time zones in between. All together now!
Wednesday January 15 – Jupiter is the one to watch, as the planet of Justice (the name of Jupiter in the ancient Hebrew texts is Tzedek, meaning Justice) and continues slowly in retrograde and will be in opposition to Venus in a week. Venus also retrograde moves more quickly, and the opposition here can be increasing the role of each, as they are complementary in influence. Is this a sweetheart deal or will it have teeth? That could well be the situation, as the Mars-Uranus opposition, in a pattern squaring Jupiter-opposed to the Capricorn group of planets, has weakened, as Mars moves along in Libra, leaving Uranus behind. More on this developing pattern next week! Time for action is approaching!
Thursday January 16 – the full Moon is later on Thursday, Mars moves into a square aspect with Venus, which can be playful or even a bit cruel here, as Venus retro in Capricorn tests her strength. The Moon moves into Leo, setting the stage for a drama or Love story. The plot thickens as the Moon moves from a quixotic aspect to weepy Neptune and then trines Uranus in Aries and opposes Mercury in Aquarius at the same time. Mercury carries the message, and Uranus takes to the more detached universal parameters, as the Moon seeks a colorful stance, if not altogether graceful at the moment. A rush of energy and overly seems anxious for the starring role, we can hope for a twist in the plot offering some satisfaction or climatic saving move to rescue a damsel or a forlorn wizard or plan old citizen you or me.
Friday January 17 – Jupiter is scissored in opposition to Venus and Pluto, falling right at the midpoint opposition. This will tend to magnify the issues of gender equality, already simmering on the stove. While beauty does tend to fade, it can also be transformed to a surrender in manifestation of human dignity. There is charm as well as a deeper undercurrent detected here. How does the pageant go? Prince charming rescues the maiden from the evil sorcerer’s poison apple. Or is there a new twist to the tale? Beauty transforms the beast, and alchemy works to change it into the handsome prince? There are many ways and places that this can work out, on many levels. Hopefully we will see good results and a well earned curtain call.
Saturday January 18 – working on a way to avoid disaster, on all levels, we are prompted to take more precautions , store resources and reserve supplies for the weekend, a journey or a few days at home. This can feel like the eye of the storm, I tend to think, and so we can get into a relaxation mode, for now.
Sunday January 19 – On this day, the Moon enters Virgo, opposing Neptune, where it can draw on paranormal experience. However, this transit is brief, and most likely normality sets in as the Moon continues on its way. The Sun, in it’s final degree of Capricorn, reminds us of the standards for government, parents and authorities that should play a stabilizing role in life. Even as we work to comprehend a new roles we are internalizing, we are releasing barriers, dissolving blocks to creatively express our actualized abundance. Venus again challenges with the square to Mars yet backing into the collective consciousness, slowly dissolving fixed ideas about the role of men and women in the society of the future.
Venus continues retrograde all of January, and is closest to Pluto’s degree location at the end of the month, when it reverses and moves away in a direct motion. Amazingly, it is at this very point of conjunction that Jupiter reaches at the same time in opposition, the feminine mystique may be working up for higher office, breaking at last that last glass ceiling. The collective unconscious psyche is preparing for transformation. A meaningful and important link in the evolution of a nation and the world.
I see a few examples of this Venus-Pluto alliance working out into a marriage and going for big!
Have a great week of transformation!Gimelstar
