The collection of planets that have been traveling through Aquarius together have begun to move into Pisces. The Sun moved into Pisces last week on the 18th and today, the 25th, Venus joins her. We are letting go of the past cycle and preparing for a new one (which will begin when the Sun enters Aries in March). With the Sun and Venus in Pisces we are better connected to our internal reality, and we tend to feel a greater connection to, and compassion for, the suffering of others.
As mentioned in the last post, this year’s energy is defined by a third-quarter square between Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Aquarius. It exacts three times over the year, and last week (the 17th of February) was the first time. Did you feel it?
Like any square, there is tension as both planets need to be satisfied. Uranus wants us to break free from circumstances that feel boring or restricting, and Saturn wants us to retain some level of stability. The restless tension of this particular square may lead to the desire to make a sudden career change or a move.
Ordinarily, the first time a major transit comes into exact, one gets a glimpse of what needs to happen or a good sense of the issue at hand. At the second exact, something concrete happens, and at the third, there is some integration of the solution.
Pull out your chart and see where 7º of Taurus and Aquarius fall in your wheel. The placement of Uranus shows where you are stuck and what needs to change, and the placement of Saturn shows why you need to change that thing.
For example, I have a friend who has Uranus in his 6th house (of diet and health) and Saturn in his 3rd (the thought process). A few days ago, he got a jolt of a thought that he might be becoming intolerant to wheat. Uranus works like that; he shoots thoughts out from the subconscious to the conscious mind. If we are jolted by a thought that seems to come from nowhere and it happens more than two times, it’s best to pay attention to it. It is telling us of an incremental change that we should make so as to avoid a crisis later on. My friend received the repeated thought that he would do well to make the shift to eating less wheat products. He made the connection because he is beginning to feel brain fog after eating excessive carbohydrates. His diet (the 6th house) has begun to affect the functioning of his mental process (3rd house).
If you would like some help interpreting how this square may affect you, please post your chart or the information related to where 7º of Taurus and Aquarius falls in your wheel, and we will work it out here, in the comment stream.
