Gauntlet IV

Saturn’s Station doesn’t occur till 17 April, so we’re still deep in the middle of Gauntlet II and III, but the 14 April Station of Veritas (Truth) adds another Dimension.  It occurs at 25 Leo, a Degree Zone which we’re quite familiar with after the last several years…

There’s usually one major focus to a chart, but this one has several that are hard to rank…

  • Truth (Veritas) of course is Stationary (7pm PDT 14 April), making it very Strong
  • Choosing to Expose our Essence (Lachesis-Eris-Sun) probably wins this lottery, as it’s a corner of both the Grand Cross (red square and cross) and the Grand Trine (blue Triangle)
  • New Beginnings (Klotho) are Important because they head a Diamond Star (T-Square and Yod pointing to same planet)
  • Loving the Edges of our Consciousness as alternative to Ego Death (Sappho-Juno) also heads a Diamond Star
  • Truth, Rebirth (Haumea), New Beginnings (Klotho), and Embracing Fear as Power (Sedna) are all Lit Up by Fingers of God (the green wedgies)
  • “A Butterfly with the right wing more perfectly formed” (25 Aquarius) is Powerful as the Vacancy that would Complete the Grand Sextile (blue hexagon)

There is a Fixed Star at 25 Aquarius, Deneb Algedi, which is about Leadership and Justice – these are the qualities (and perhaps Transformation into what’s “Right”) that we have to provide if we want Grace to Finish what we Start (the Grand Sextile).  Deneb Algedi is the Dolphin-Tail of the Capricorn Goat. 

Capricorn is a very complex symbol.  The Goat isn’t too far from Ixion, always Irreverent but fully Itself.  With a Fish’s Tail, implying that it’s driven forward by its Emotions.  Yet the Fish isn’t a Fish at all, but a Marine Mammal.  That connects it to Nurturance and Wisdom, like the Empress.  It’s the Return of the Sun, but a time of Privation and Hunger and Community.

All of the Important points deserve more Attention, which we’ll try to find time for in a subsequent post.
