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 cardinal sign there is a sense of having completed one phase and moving into another.

June 6 – Jupiter enters Aries, followed June 8 by the exact conjunction of Jupiter to Uranus, merging the principle of expansion and confidence, optimism and righteousness (Jupiter) with the iconoclastic rebel and seeker of justice and equality (Uranus).

The combination of Jupiter and Uranus opens the mind and the sense of possibilities so that we can more easily embrace change, and this is extremely beneficial in light of the upcoming stressors between Saturn and Pluto and then next year’s square between Uranus and Pluto.

At the Summer Solstice, the Sun enters Cancer at zero degrees and forms an exact square (challenging aspect) to Jupiter and Uranus.  Pluto is tied into this aspect as well as it opposes the Solstice Sun, signifying a period of great transformation.

Just a few days later, on June 26, there is a Full Moon partial eclipse in Capricorn which is exactly conjunct Pluto and in range of a square to Jupiter and Uranus.  This is a powerful lunar event that also ties Saturn and Mercury into the Cardinal Grand Cross.

I believe that this is the event that will set the wheels into motion.  The Grand Cross is a powerful alignment that creates resistance that erupts into conflict and, ultimately, resolution.  Our resistance to change will be revealed under these influences and we will have to let go in order to ride the wave into a new future.

Complicating matters is that Uranus is stationary at the zero degree point where it is at its most emphatic.  Uranus asks us to become more authentic – to seek perfection at its most ideal, and to let go of any ideas that hold us back from achieving greater harmony with our highest purpose – living a life of pure joy with compassion and cooperation.

Meanwhile, Jupiter moves just a few degrees and then slows down in an exact square to Pluto between July 25 and August 3, fomenting rebellion and resistance to authority.  Righteousness and self-righteousness peak under this influence, enhancing the possibility of social chaos which ties right into the final Saturn/Pluto event on August 21st.

The square of Saturn and Pluto can be somewhat dark, but this is the final phase so its lessons have likely already been assimilated.  Saturn and Pluto ask: Where are the limits to our endurance – where can we no longer make adjustments and THAT’s where adjustments are necessary.  Saturn and Pluto bring the hard work that follows the expansion of Jupiter and Uranus.

These planetary cycles will be felt most deeply by those of us whose natal planets are aspected by the planetary movements in the sky.  It’s important to remember that nature strives for balance, and the only change and transformation that will occur is in areas that are out of balance.  This is true in our personal lives, and also in the world at large.  Nations and individuals who respect others and have built their world on a solid foundation will simply experience an expansion of awareness and an embrace of a variety of ideas.  Those who are living in deception and futility could be faced with challenges that will force a transformation that will ultimately lead to greater balance.

So in a nutshell, that’s my take on the Summer of Transformation.  Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting the ideas of other experts as well.

    Hi Lynn, can you tell me where I’d find the information as to the degrees in Cancer, libra, capricorn and aries where this grand cross comes into being please? Kind regards Debbie

    • lokasiwisata.info May 19, 2010 at 5:09 am

      Hi Debbie, the grand cross occurs between 0 and 6 degrees of the cardinal signs.

    First of this post is interesting. Secondly you made me laugh with the firs phrase about scatological – **not** eschatological! – comments, well: There are mad people on the web isn’t it…

    This link may prove to be interesting in relation to the scientific problems and opportunities related to the aspect of Jupiter and Uranus…

  3. luana May 20, 2010 at 12:02 am

    Great writing, Lynn. I like your interpretation. I’m going to keep a copy of this to refer back to once things really get rolling this summer. I guess we’re beginning to get a sense now of what we’ve been preparing for all along… gulp.

    • lokasiwisata.info May 20, 2010 at 6:37 am

      Thanks Luana, and yes – we ‘ve known for a long time this is coming. Even non-astrologers have had a sense of it. It’s all part of the natural flow of the Universe. I like to think of these times as being like hurricanes. If your house is built on a strong foundation, it can withstand the wind and the rain and when the hurricane is over the air is so clear and beautiful.

    This is a fabulous site for information. First class, highly relevant and understandable. I am sharing this with friends. Thank you.

  5. Nancy May 31, 2010 at 9:55 am

    Thanks for this article. I do know something about these energies. I have a Cardinal Cross – Pallas – 6 Aries, Moon 6 Cancer and Uranus 13 Cancer, Saturn 8 Libra, and Chiron 10 Capricorn.

    As it turns out, I also have Venus 0 Cancer and Sun 1 Cancer. It is going to be an interesting summer

    When you have a Cardinal Cross it always feels like you are plowing new ground and you rarely get any rest because there is always work to be done. But it is possible to achieve success.

    LYNN THANKS for your wonderful and deep research and indepth interpetation of the events to come,I appreciate such because I was born on June 21st and have been for 6 years working on the stages of this transformation since 2004..and have realized so much more about life and will continue to cope the challenges to come..Thank you…A/T.Dallas Texas……

    Interesting article, the next months do look a bit daunting! You mention the challenging aspects at the Summer Solstice but did not mention that there is, at the same time, a beautiful grand triun with Sun, Moon and Neptune & Chiron. Can we not expect at least a brief softening of the tensions because of this?

    something just hit Jupiter…goto spaceweather.com to view the video

      Thanks Maureen – this happened just in time for the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction. Interesting correlation!

  9. tamara June 7, 2010 at 8:19 am

    hi lynn, loved the info… have a question and hope it’s not a silly one … does this all still relate if we’re in the southern hemisphere? i noticed that you’re talking summer solstice, but i’m in australia where obviously it’s opposite … the winter solstice.

  10. lokasiwisata.info June 7, 2010 at 4:52 pm

    Tamara, that’s not at all a silly question and I should probably make a note in the post. In the southern hemisphere it’s the winter solstice, but it still marks the turning of the season and the beginning of a new phase so it’s still an important event in the turning of the year!

  11. Cynthia Deanne June 9, 2010 at 12:13 pm

    hi lynn, i want to start by saying how much i love your articles, especially skywatch. I’m an aquarius, a double aquarius in fact, born on a new moon, with water sign scorpio as my ascendant(water bearer?). my parents, who are christian and have no knowledge nor liking towards any other beliefs, happened to name me cynthia deanne rojo, my first and middle name versions of names for the moon goddess, my last name meaning red (red moon?). Anyways, this Jupiter Uranus conjunction is very, very important to me, for two reasons. one, Uranus is my ruling planet. second, i recently found out i am carrying my first child, who will be born under the sign sagittarius, whose ruling planet is Jupiter. so with the joining of the planets Uranus and Jupiter, and the joining of my soul and hers, my question is…has there been any evidence that the planets alignments and the astrological makeup of a mother and her child have a strong connection, or any at all? Thanks

    • lokasiwisata.info June 9, 2010 at 5:12 pm

      Cynthia, thanks for your kind words and congratulations on your pregnancy! There are always interesting alignments within families, and often duplicated planetary configurations. Some are challenging and some are flowing – I’ve seen parents whose children are their soulmates and their best friends, and then some, like with me and my mother, are horrifically challenging but end up (with her in her 80s and me in my 50s) as incredibly rewarding. We incarnate in family groups for a reason, and whether it is an ideal situation or difficult, we are here to teach each other.

    Hi Lynn
    Thankyou for such a great insight, Ive been watching this grand cross coming up, my daughter has the Pluto on her MC 4 Cap Squ ASC 4 Ari and Merc 1 Libra. Her Moon is conjuct the MC 8 Cap as well. Would appreciate any insights from anyone, Ive never written on a blog before but feel this is important. Reb was born 7.48 Sydney Aus 29th Aug 1982 if anyone is interested.

    This last eclipse definitely showed me where my weak spots were and also introduced me to a new experience. I had a big flare up of an absessed tooth which ended up in a root canal that made me feel much better. I have always sensed presences but never “saw” one. During this event I saw my first ghost. I also heard a meow from a long gone beloved cat that sometimes felt like he was around. I only saw the ghost for a split second. I didn’t recognize her. It was not ominous. Later when I was looking at the wedding picture of my mother and father, I realized that the ghost could very well have been my mother at a younger age. I don’t know the meaning of all of this but feel it is significant.

  14. Elizabeth Ann July 28, 2010 at 4:06 pm

    Also , I am a Capricorn with my moon in capricorn and a Leo rising.

  15. Helen July 29, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    I’m wondering how you see the war in Mexico against the Mafia
    playing out through this alignment?

  16. joanna August 9, 2010 at 2:03 am

    Was looking for answers, have found the year getting harder work and here I find the reason why and dates. Read my diary and they tally nicely. I can therefore assume that I am not mad it is just as it should be!
