MUCH HAS BEEN cleared away in recent days. Through their square aspect last week, Pluto and Uranus have been doing a lot of work with us.
Pluto is a master at stripping off many layers of how we have learned to define ourselves, taking us down to the basic foundation of who we are. Once in the presence of that Essential Self, we encouraged to rebuild — but in new ways, as who we are and what we want to create has been changed.
And, Uranus is the master of surprise — the unexpected event that shocks us at first, but eventually liberates us to embrace some new experience or way of life. Once we catch our breath (and this can take some time), we can start to imagine how to rebuild our lives, even more authentically than before.
THIS WEEK is about adapting to the changes, trying to wrap our brains around the new reality that has brazenly taken over our familiar and comfortable landscape, and starting to brainstorm the possibilities from here. Most likely, the actual reconstruction process is a ways off, after we’ve had some time to think through what’s possible and where we want to go next.
To help us in this regard, we have an alignment between three planets — Jupiter, Venus and Mercury — in Gemini on Monday and Tuesday. Gemini is the sign of the Idea Generator, the Communicator, and the Networker. This alignment supports our talking things over and coming up with ideas. Gemini is also a mutable sign, which will help us be more flexible in our thinking and open to new perspectiv
WHILE THESE THREE planets are in alignment, Uranus forms a quintile aspect with the group — and while Uranus almost always involves some surprises, with a quintile, there is also opportunity
Astrologer Bil Tierney writes in his book Dynamics of Aspect Analysis that a quintile has “occult, transcendent undertones,” and “is considered to symbolize an aspirant’s creative soul alignment with the Will of the Cosmos.” He also explains:
“The quintile enables one to construct (mental) form in an ideal manner that most perfectly reflects the archetypal purpose of that form… To bring the promise of the quintile into productive use could suggest that the individual first understand and accept that mind and matter are essentially one and the same.”
THIS QUINTILE between Uranus and Jupiter-Venus-Mercury provides us with the opportunity — and challenge — to rise above the mind’s natural perception of recent events, and to find new ways to think about what has occurred.
We have the ability to harness the creative power of our minds and to find positive possibilities in the midst of what appears to be destruction. This is a conscious exercise that is not necessarily easy, but it should help us both accept what has occurred and align more fully with “the Will of the Cosmos” as we go forward from here
THE REST of the planetary interactions are grouped at the end of the week. Three planets change signs — Mercury and Venus enter Cancer, and Mars goes into Gemini — which will help us take our next steps forward.
On Saturday, the Sun forms aspects to both Pluto and Uranus, bringing more of the consequences of the recent changes into our awareness. Since the Uranus-Sun aspect is an opportunistic sextile, we are assisted in seeing new potentials, if we choose. And, although the Pluto-Sun aspect requires some adjustment, if we are willing to think outside the box and let go of preconceptions about what’s possible, this influence can also help us move past places where we’ve been feeling blocked.
OUR UPCOMING TELECLASS is just a couple of weeks away! I’m getting excited, and hope you are, too. Here’s the information about the class again, if you’re considering participating:
|TELECLASS THURSDAY, JUNE 13
Our Journey of Transformation Continues
How planetary energies will support and
challenge us in the rest of 2013
with Astrologer Pam Younghans
and Wellness Educator Elsie Kerns
Thursday, June 13
4 to 5:30pm PDT (7 to 8:30pm EDT)
Attend either by phone or online!
Or, if you cannot attend “live,” all registrants will receive a recording of the class and a pdf of the slideshow.
LIFE IS MOVING quite rapidly these days — it seems new challenges arise almost daily, but thankfully, solutions are not far behind. Like adept surfers, we are learning not to attach to either the highs or the lows, but to maintain our center amidst the waves.
As we move into the last six months of 2013, the planets will both support and challenge us, with the goal of helping us become the empowered and liberated beings we were born to be. During the class, we’ll talk about:
- a supportive Grand Water Trine in mid-July
- a challenging T-square with Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter and Mars in late July-early August
- the always-important Libra Equinox in September
- eclipses in October and November
- the final 2013 Pluto-Uranus square in November
- and some very interesting configurations involving Pluto, Uranus, Mercury, Mars and the Sun as we finish the calendar year
As you can see, there’s a lot going on!
Join us for this 90-minute teleclass, where we’ll walk month-by-month through the rest of 2013. We’ll talk about when the supportive and challenging energies are the strongest, discuss possible manifestations, and share perspectives on the higher purpose of it all.
We hope you will join us!
