By 2020 we’re still working on these 22-25 Degrees! Good idea to put extra effort into our very busy and demanding homework on these Degrees now; the more we do now, the easier it will be later! The Universe isn’t Random – this long span of working with these Degrees is a primer for the 2020 Saturn-Pluto. When we’re speaking of Huperity at large, Saturn-Pluto makes the Lizards jump for Joy, creating some of the bleakest times for Huperity. Like the massive earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, or “9/11,” or NAFTA and the WTO, or AIDS – correlates to our last four Saturn-Pluto adventures.
The 2020 Saturn-Pluto occurs at 23 Capricorn, “Bravery in Combat” – which it is likely to feel like if it turns out to be a showdown between the Patriarchy and its successor, or between the Lizards and the Mammals – we’ll bring this up later.
It draws a big crowd – it’s a Stellium of six planets between 22 and 26 Degrees of Capricorn – Sun, Ceres, Saturn, Pluto, Mercury, and Hopi.
That combination has the potential to Change Huper Herstory significantly.
The Stellium Squares Eris, which is Stationary, and makes a Minor Tricolor to Chaos-Asbolus: Eris Square Stellium Quincunx Chaos-Asbolus Sextile Eris…
“I Wonder how the Infinite Nature (Chaos) of my Intuition (Asbolus) will influence the Stress between my Unconscious Trance (Pluto) and my Conscious Will (Saturn) and help me Accept the Truth (Eris)?”
We’ll go into the Moon’s deeper meaning of Instinct and Authenticity – which should totally Change our Attitude toward Pluto-Moon, in a little while.
The biggest Configuration in the 2020 Pluto-Saturn Initiation chart is a Diamond Star (a T-Square and a Yod pointing at the same planet) to a Stationary Nemesis. Pallas-Veritas and Chaos-Asbolus form the base of the T-Square. Hopi-Venus and Eris form the base of the Yod. As part of this Configuration…
Nemesis Square Chaos-Asbolus Quincunx Stellium Trine Nemesis forms a Major Tricolor…
“I Wonder how the Infinite Nature (Chaos) of my Intuition (Asbolus) will influence the Stress between my Unconscious Trance (Pluto) and my Conscious Will (Saturn) and help me Understand how I sabotage myself (Nemesis)?”
Which brings us directly back to the Moon. In mundane 3D Reality, the Moon symbolizes our “Random” Emotions. Someone cuts us off in traffic, and one day we’re shaking our fist at them, the next day we slow down and make space for them, assuming they have a good reason to hurry, maybe even say a quick Prayer for their Safety. Venus on the other hand represents our Consistent Emotions – our Values. Unless there are extenuating circumstances or superior Values, we seldom Feel Enthused when someone commits murder. The third level of the Emotional panoply is Vesta, which stands for our Unconscious Beliefs. It takes Experience to figure out which of our Values arise from our Heart (Venus) and which arise from our Karma or Programming or Archetypes (Vesta).
Now, let’s look at those Random Emotions. Chances are, the fellow (it probably was a male) whom you got mad at for cutting you off was probably himself Angry, maybe he thought you were slowing him down, or maybe he was just having a bad day, or maybe all of his days were bad ones. The person you didn’t get mad at, probably did have a good reason to be in a hurry, rushing to the hospital or pick up their kid from school on time. Feelings don’t exist in a vacuum, they’re a Field, and we have to be very careful to distinguish our own from other peoples’.
What does that tell us about the Moon? It represents our Instincts!
How often do we Trust our Instincts? When we’re cut off in traffic, we don’t need to invest a lot of intellectual firepower in figuring out why it happened, so we just back off the throttle, either out of consideration or out of caution. When someone gives us a very subtle insult, the issue is a lot different. Do we allow ourself to React Honestly? Do we consider who it was that insulted us? Do we take a time out and investigate whether it’s really just an old Unconscious wound of our own that was triggered by an innocent comment, and not an insult at all?
If we were living in Yintegrity, and it was Safe to do so (it wouldn’t cost us our livelihood or our Life), we might React Honestly, watch where the chips fell, and iron out the complications accordingly – readjust our Relationship if it really was an undeserved insult, or make amends if their defense was credible. Then examine our own wounds later, in the privacy of our own Psyche (if we didn’t have a bruise already, the insult wouldn’t have hurt). If we really Trusted our Instincts, we might not even care if our Livelihood or Life was threatened – we might take it as an indication that Change was on the schedule, and follow the thread with Curiosity.
Astrology always gives us plenty of Opportunity to practice. The Moon crosses or Squares or Opposes Pluto once a week! It won’t be as intense, but Moon over Pluto will have a lot of core similarity to Pluto over Moon. This will be excellent practice for all of us – when the Moon crosses Pluto, how do we Relate to our Instincts? Do we Learn anything about how we Relate to our Instincts? Here’s our schedule for the next month…
- 21 October, noon PDT (plus or minus an hour or two)
- 26 October, 1am PDT
- 5 November, 2am PDT
- 12 November, 8pm PDT
Let me know how this turns out – do you Observe anything useful? Learn anything useful?
Honesty and Trust (and Discernment) around our Instincts is a big part of our Authenticity – we could think of the Moon as the local surrogate for Eris. We routinely discount her because we’re programmed to “be Nice.” Authenticity is represented by the Eighteenth Harmonic – planets that are separated by Angles that are multiples of twenty Degrees, half a Novile. We can Learn a lot about our Relationship to our Authenticity by looking at which planets in our natality (birth chart) are separated by multiples of twenty Degrees.
Next we need to look at what else is going on in 2020; it’s actually more significant than the Pluto-Saturn Initiation. The Pluto-Saturn Cycle spans thirty-some years (Pluto moves faster at some times than others), while the more important Cycle we’ll talk about spans two centuries, and will have a big impact on our Lives. We hint at it strongly in Reasons for Optimism below.
