Speaking of Curiosity…

So, there’s an Angle in astrology that represents Curiosity.  It has a silly name, Quincunx, and it’s when two planets are five signs apart, halfway between a Trine and an Opposition.  Five is the number of Teaching and Learning, and Curiosity is the prerequisite.  So, what planets are Quincunx to one another at the New Moon and the Solstice?

Turns out both events have the same Quincunxes – Vesta-Saturn, and Venus-Pluto.

Vesta-Saturn could be read

I Wonder how our relationship with the Sacred is changing these days!

Like Taurus, Saturn solidifies things – when we think we understand something, we park that understanding in our catalog of metaphors, where we can pull it out and use it when we need it.  It’s efficient to operate from prefab metaphors – we don’t have to spell out S-T-O-P, let’s see now, what does that mean? every time we go driving, we just respond to the red octagon.

On the other hand, Saturn freezes things.  Red octogons have lost their freedom to mean Hey, let’s party! or Wanna make Love?  So, if we’re willing to open up to it, our concepts of the Sacred are likely to be pixelating and reforming themselves.  That’s kinda what we just been talking about – letting our metaphors be useful or not, rather than unfailingly true.

Venus Quincunx Pluto is a Biggie –

I Wonder how the Goddess will Manifest Herself here!

We would normally consider Saturn to be about manifestation – solidifying into form.  But Pluto is about transformation, Trance(re)formation, changing the Trance.  So what’s really going on is not how the Goddess Manifests (She always has!), but how we see Her Manifesting.  If we open to Curiosity, there’s a new Trance available to us, where we see Her in a whole new Light.  If we open to Curiosity.
