The starry vault of heaven is in truth the open book of cosmic projection, in which are reflected the mythologems, i.e., the archetypes. In this vision astrology and alchemy, the two classical functionaries of the psychology of the collective unconscious, join hands. - Carl .G. Jung

The Cosmic Story: 3rd Uranus/Pluto Square -- May 20, 2013
Cosmic Story: 3rd Uranus/Pluto Square—May 20, 2013
What was begun in the 60s now has
to become a collective necessity in the 21st Century.The revolutionary
energy of Uranus and the evolutionary energy
of Pluto have come to a crossroads.We
have to consciously participate in evolution this time around. We are the ones who have chosen to be here at
this crucial time in our world’s history—chosen to be here to make a choice
that will determine the future of our world.Will we choose love or hate, domination or partnership, greed or
cooperation, fear or vision? We have
learned to see and know both the light and the darkness of our world, and now
we all have to do something about it.
Today we went over the limit of CO2
in our atmosphere that scientists believe we can’t recover from.What is the world’s response?What are we all going to do now?We are one world, and we are all being ‘ruled’
by an unhealthy, out-of-balance paradigm of life.Patriarchy upholds values that no longer
serve life: individualism rather than self-aware individuation, domination
rather than partnership, masculine power over feminine love and connection. Isn’t it time to step away from that old story
and find a story that fills our heart with courage and love and determination?Isn’t it time to become the heroes and
heroines of our own lives?
Three is the number of process,
and with this 3rd out of 7 squares between Uranus in Aries and Pluto
in Capricorn, it is time to awaken and stretch our muscles. This
square can be a game changer.The first
2 squares brought up the issues; now this 3rd square demands action.
Both Pluto and Uranus have moved into
the second decan (10 degrees each) of both Aries and Capricorn.The 2nd decan of Aries is overseen
by Leo—the steady fire sign of individuation. The 2nd decan of Capricorn is
overseen by Taurus—the secure sign of building and manifestation.The Cosmic Story offers us a chance to build
our individual vision of life in the midst of cultural transformation.
The Sabian symbol for Uranus at
12* Aries is: A triangle-shaped flight of
wild geese.This symbol urges us to
believe in Cosmic Order.There is a
bigger story going on than our old collective story, and when we can see the
image of that new story clearly, we can live it.
The Sabian symbol for Pluto at
12* Capricorn is: An illustrated lecture
on natural science reveals little-known aspects of life.This is a call to explore all aspects of life,
especially our right-brain, feminine consciousness, which can show us the
natural laws of life.
Together, these symbols challenge
us to step outside-the-box and into our destiny—our life’s purpose.Explore and believe.Challenge and change.Imagine and manifest. (for an interesting talk on The Science
Delusion by Rupert Sheldrake which was removed from the TED site, see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKHUaNAxsTg)
Uranus in Aries is the great
Awakener.This energy fertilizes our
consciousness like lightning fertilizes the fields in Springtime.I’ve been suggesting that we use this Uranus
energy to find our archetypal ‘soul-identity’, rather than an unconscious Aries
‘ego-identity’. Uranus awakens
consciousness, so we think outside-the-box, understand our emotions and
transform them into conscious feelings, access the imaginal realms where creation
begins and listen in the silence after the thunder for Spirit to speak to us.
Are you a leader, an inventor, a
healer, a bard?Are you a mother, an
artist, a teacher, a priestess?Uranus
urges us to see ourselves in larger, collective roles—not the roles patriarchy
offers us, but rather the necessary and archetypal roles that all humans must
fill to create a healthy, compassionate society.
Pluto’s energy in Capricorn is
behind all the dirty little secrets that are coming to light about our
government and it’s collusion with our banks and corporations. The American Supreme Court just ruled in
favor of Monsanto holding our food system hostage with their GMO seeds. The US Congress won’t pass a gun control law
despite the slaughter of innocents.The
US government is spying on its own citizens in the name of security.Corporate profits are at an all-time high—and
so is poverty.The old patriarchal center will not hold any
longer—people all around the world have been educated and know that our freedom
and our future is in jeopardy.
Uranus gives us the energy to
rise up what is new and necessary for life in those places Pluto tears down, that
are decayed and rotten.One way we can help the process is to step out
of our patriarchal mindset—our 3D reality—and imagine and create our own vision of the future with our community.If we spend time every day imagining what
kind of life we want to share with others here on Earth, we can bring that new
vision into our collective reality. Of
course, then we have to find ways to implement it.That means we have to engage in our
communities and help solve problems. As
we stand and face the evil in our world, and name it for what is it, we have a
chance of changing the probable outcome of our reckless consumer reality.
With Neptune in Pisces, we have a
multitude of realities to choose from. Instead of continuing to be caught up in the patriarchal
game of power and money, we can choose to live in a more fruitful reality, one
that places love at its center. There
are other ways to use our talents and help each other. There are other forms of exchange.This breakup of our culture is a necessary
step toward our future.So don’t
despair!Take action and join with like-minded
The proper use of the Creative Imagination
is so important right now.We use
imagination to keep our intentions for the future viable.An image is an energy conductor.So when you visualize the life you want to live--see it and feel it, don’t just think it.We each have something to give to our
world.See it, believe it and live
it.That’s how change happens.
When you see evil in the world
and you get upset, find that tiny space of darkness within you and bring it into
the light. Each time we redeem the
darkness within us, we bring more light to the world.It’s time for us to embrace the dark and see
our own shadows.Once we accept these
rejected parts of ourselves, we can find ways to use that shadow energy for the good
of life, rather than the repression of life. Be clear about what you want—know what you
value.Then use your imagination coupled
with your will to stand up for your values, not just in your personal life but
also for our collective life.
The Sun goes into Gemini an hour
before these two planets come into exact square.The Moon is in Libra.Both our lights
are in air signs, so look at how you think, how you categorize, how you communicate
and how you relate.Air symbolizes our
mental knowing, so give your mind a spring cleaning so the cosmic laws of life
structure our knowing.
Blessings in this time of cosmic
transformation! Bright Blessings in these transformational times. Cathy
