Ceres re-enters Sagittarius and other Ceres news

Because I will be out of town the first week of June, the monthly Skywatch article will be delayed until I return.  There’s still time to sign up for your own free subscription!  You can sign up in the sidebar here, or on my website.

Ceres is very important the first week of June.  It forms a challenging square to both Uranus and Jupiter on the 6th and 7th and then trines Mars before moving back into Sagittarius late on the 7th (Ceres has been in Capricorn since April).

Ceres has to do with our connection to the earth.  She presides over ecological matters, but also our own ability to sustain and nourish ourselves.  I expect there may be a breakthrough in the Horizon oil rig disaster situation in the Gulf during that week as Jupiter and Uranus bring surprise and a shift in the status quo.

Ceres in Sagittarius is nurtured through knowledge and the pursuit of wisdom, and under this influence for the next five years there will be more of a focus on discovering ways that we can improve our relationship to the Earth.

Uranus in Aries – May 27 2010

The power of the Full Moon in Sagittarius on May 27 contains the movement of the planet Uranus into Aries.  Uranus changes signs every seven years or so, and it will dip its metaphorical toe into Aries and remain at zero degrees of that sign until mid-August when it will retrograde back into Pisces until 2011, at which time it  will begin to face off against Pluto in their exact square confrontation.

Much has been written about the upcoming Uranus/Pluto square, in these pages and elsewhere – when these two planets get together there is a huge force for transformation and radical change.

Uranus is very much at home in Aries: the primal needs of Aries find pure and unfettered expression when Uranus makes its home there.  Uranus is a mental planet that brings focus to our ideas of what will make life better.  Uranus is an idealist; in the ancient myth he stole his children away from their mother Gaia and imprisoned them in Tartarus because they were monsters.  He dislikes messy emotional situations and prefers utopian environments where there is social equality and absolute freedom.

In Aries, Uranus is emancipated from any rules or structures that inhibit its revolutionary new ideas.  Aries is the sign of pure instinct and adventure; it tends to be always in motion, unimpeded by fear or caution.  In the sign of Aries, Uranus is inventive but also impulsive, and tends to shoot first and aim later.   Uranus is known as the planet that can truly “shock and awe,” bringing events that surprise us and change our lives forever, and in Aries its power to bring about sudden reversals is even more pronounced.

Uranus in Aries is filled with ideas for how to make change happen, but lacking respect for Saturnian structure and […]

Jupiter meets Uranus and the countdown begins

Jupiter Uranus conjunction(Please refrain from making scatalogical jokes!)  Well folks, we’re getting down to it – the planetary drama that has  been much discussed over the past few years is finally upon us.  Our challenge is to be alert and aware of the impending explosion into consciousness of  a new awareness and experience, without devolving into fear as change begins to spin our world around.

The countdown to the Cardinal Drama, as I like to call it, really began back in early 2008 when Pluto entered Capricorn.  The Cardinal signs are the signs of initiation and change: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.  They are the most active of the signs, and planets in these signs tend to dominate other planetary influences.  The movement of Pluto (death and rebirth) into Capricorn (structure, discipline, reality) created a wave of consolidation that forever altered the financial landscape.

The second event leading up to the Cardinal Drama was the opposition between Uranus (that which changes) and Saturn (that which remains the same), an opposition which is still underway through the summer.

Over the next few weeks we’ll see the intensity begin to increase as the pure energy of life continues to accelerate.  This might feel like a carnival ride – thrilling for many, but frightening for some.  The intensity of the consciousness change that is at work here can completely transform us as individuals and as communities.  Here’s what’s coming up for the summer of 2010.

May 28 – Uranus enters Aries, instigating a change in the electromagnetic frequency that surrounds the planet (Uranus rules electromagnetic energy which is a building block of consciousness).

Because the cardinal signs initiate new activity, when planets move from a mutable sign (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) to a […]

Chiron in Pisces: The bliss of healing

Chiron in PiscesChiron moves into the sign of Pisces today.  Chiron is an interesting planetary body whose orbit lies in the Kuiper belt.  But just as Chiron was not an ordinary Centaur even though he was half horse and half man, Chiron is not just an ordinary KBO (Kuiper Belt Object).  For more information on the planetary properties of Chiron visit this earlier article, and here you’ll find more information on the astrological Chiron.

Today Chiron leaves Aquarius for the sign of Pisces.  In its role as the Wounded Healer, Chiron shows where are deepest wounds lie, and where we will find the keys to healing.  A soul that has experienced the intensity of experience in emotional or physical pain has an opportunity to gain greater wisdom and a depth of consciousness and awareness by delving deep into the wound that is not available without these experiences.

Chiron is the guide on this journey, giving us the courage to open our hearts despite the fear and pain that may make this process excrutiatingly difficult in some cases.

While Chiron was in Aquarius from 2005 until next year (Chiron will retrograde back into Aquarius in July to complete the process) we have seen the ways in which technology, one of the domains of Aquarius, has created wounds and intensified experiences of loneliness and isolation in the midst of 1,000 Facebook friends.  Aquarius, with its double rulership of Saturn (rules and isolation) and Uranus (the collective) has a tendency to become somewhat disconnected from the heart and soul, living primarily in the head and the realm of thoughts and ideas.

The period of Chiron traveling through Aquarius completes itself with an opposition between those two planets […]

Mercury retrograde! Tonight until May 11

Mercury will turn retrograde on April 18th at 12:06 am EDT (4:06 am GMT).  Mercury, being the messenger god and the lord of communication, presides over all aspects of communication  including the mental processing of experiences.  Mercury also rules small machinery and short-distance travel.

The recent air traffic problems caused by the Iceland volcano is an example of Mercury Retrograde reversals.

When Mercury turns retrograde, as it does for three weeks four times a year, communication can sometimes become difficult, there are often travel glitches and snafus in contract negotiations.  This is not universally true, and we can go though entire Mercury retrograde periods with no problems.  But it’s useful to know when Mercury is retrograde so that you can be more careful with all matters regarding the transmission of information.  Put everything in writing, clarify everything two or three times so that there’s no confusion, and if confusion reigns anyway just laugh and say “Ha! Mercury is retrograde.”

Mercury is in stable and solid Taurus now, and the Taurus dislike of change could make the retrograde experience more uncomfortable.  During the retrograde cycle, through May 11, it will likely be necessary to go back and re-trace your steps, redoing any mistakes we have made.  Taurus prefers to be firmly rooted, moving neither forwards nor backwards.  This could create some inner conflict for us and make it more difficult to make needed transitions.

Because of the retrograde period, Mercury will remain in Taurus longer than usual making this a good time to become familiar with the pleasurable aspects of life in a body.  Delicious food, comfortable fabrics, the delight of a good hug – all of these things are highlighted for the next few months.  Under the Taurean influence we will be less inclined to chatter, particularly during the retrograde […]
