“No Loose Ends”
By Isaac George
Since November 1st we’ve seen an acceleration of events that is quite breathtaking. On November 1st, the 4th Uranus-Pluto square occurred, and fortunately, no major or surprising event took place immediately afterwards. I believe this is because Uranus is still in retrograde motion, muting the power of that archetype in the sign of Aries. The warrior is being still…contemplating the next moves in this celestial chess match. One of the most powerful moments was the heliocentric (Sun-centered) peak of the Uranus-Pluto dance, which happened on November 23rd, less than a week ago. This will set the stage for Uranus moving direct on December 18th. Once it gets up a head of steam over the holiday period, it will be at full strength for the beginning of 2014.
However, all has not been quiet or uneventful since November 1st. The Philippines was hit with a massive typhoon, which many considered to be the strongest storm on record since records began being kept. Devastation from earthquakes and storms in that region of the Pacific is increasing in magnitude. The Ring of Fire has never really gone to sleep, but seems more active than ever since November 1st. Six volcanoes started erupting simultaneously, in the Indonesian archipelago and Mt.Etna in Sicily! A whole new landmass from an undersea volcano appeared out of the ocean off the coast of Japan as well, matching the one that appeared off the coast of India in October. Mother Earth is stretching and moving. There is some speculation around man-made influence regarding the Philippine typhoon, and I cannot rule it out or in. Weather modification and tectonic tinkering is a known fact, and some governments, notably the United States and Russia, have been delving deeply into this dangerous territory for perhaps decades.
One of the other manifestations of the Uranus-Pluto cycle will be increasing social and political unrest. The ‘push-back’ has begun, and although you may not read about it in the controlled media, resistance is building among many peoples worldwide against the increasing levels of control, taxation, spying and general complicating of life beyond reason or affordability. I’ll be writing more on this at the turn of the year, as things will heat up considerably as we move towards the Spring Equinox in 2014.
Meanwhile, signs and portents in the sky are drawing eyes heavenward. Comet Ison (pictured above) will be making it’s loop around the Sun today (Nov.28th), and if it doesn’t vaporize in the Solar Corona, then our planet will travel through a sizeable cloud of debris from the comet’s wake, sometime around January 12th, 2014. Some have speculated that this may be a panspermia event, a seeding of interstellar material directly on to the Earth biosphere. This material won’t incinerate apparently, because it will be so fine and moving so slowly and it may take decades for this stardust to wend its way through our atmosphere to the surface. This is also something that Mars will experience as well.
Saturn in Scorpio and the Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio were front and center. An article appeared in the main stream media recently that punctures some balloons around the life and work of Mother Theresa. A total saint she wasn’t. Paedophilia and slavery scandals are still popping up with regularity in the press as well, mostly in the U.K. though. But what has really caught my attention with this astro cycle is the recent upsurge of women I know who are experiencing a welling up of shame, so that it can be addressed and healed. Much of this shame is sexual in origin as well (Saturn in Scorpio), with old judgments and restrictive taboos at their root…all originating in the patriarchy (Saturn) of course.
The last major topic is the upcoming Venus Retrograde in Capricorn. This will set the stage for the Mars Effect beginning next year, but let’s stay with this one for now. Venus turns retrograde at 28 degrees and 58 minutes of Capricorn on Dec.21st at 21:54 GMT. The Sun will enter Capricorn a few hours before signalling the Winter Solstice. Venus does the retrograde thing approximately once every 18 months or so, and is part of an 8 year cycle. Venus represents the value we place on love and money…or beautiful possessions. Retrogrades are a call for a more internal focus. With Capricorn, the focus will almost always be on practical and structural themes. However, this is Venus we’re talking about here…the ruler of Taurus and Libra – survival in our environment and relationships. If you have any planets or angles in your chart close to or at 28 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries or Libra, you can be sure that you will feel this transit most poignantly. The call is to reflect and review about your purpose and whether you are being true to it. We will be called upon to weigh our value system in light of our personal relationships and any fears or anxiety we may harbour about standing up in our own life and charting our own course. This doesn’t necessarily mean living life alone or singly, but to reorder our relationships in ways that honour ourselves and the ‘other’ or ‘others’ we are involved with. We’ve been in the shadow part of this cycle since November 20th, so you’ve probably noticed that some ‘shadow’ material about your intimate relationships has been ‘up’ lately. The Retrograde lasts till January 31st, but we won’t exit the other shadow period till March 4th, 2014. Lots of inner and outer work on tap, and we’re just starting.
What a time to be alive!
Until the next update, journey well.
