My own breaking news is that you can now enter into the debate and post your comments in my new Facebook group – The World of Astrology – now up and running:
What’s happening this week? Regular readers will be familiar with the phrase, “As above, so below”. This invites you to look at astrological symbolism as a reflection of life here on planet Earth rather than as something causal.
There are several events of significance starting with the Uranus – Pluto square, exact late this evening. This aspect – rare because it is formed by two of the slow moving outer planets – repeats an astonishing 7 times, and this is the third (the series started last June, will finish in March 2015, the fourth contact will be 1 November).
The Uranus – Pluto alliance is anarchic, explosive and dramatic. One story that reflects the symbolism exactly was actually planned and contained:
“A two-mile viaduct in the Chinese city of Wuhan has been demolished, breaking a record for the longest reinforced concrete bridge ever blown up in the country.” (BBC news)
However, it usually carries a huge shock factor, the things you don’t see coming or only know about at the last minute. The headlines this morning capture this with yet another tragedy of car bombs in Iraq and the devastation of deadly tornados tearing through Oklahoma, resulting in a state of emergency being declared in 16 counties.
At a personal level then knowing how to contain our own dramas and operate our rescue and recovery skills is part of the human experience. Working consciously with what can be repaired/bridge built, or accepting that which is beyond our control, is part of the picture. At the moment this will be especially poignant for you if you have planets positioned at 11 degrees in the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn).
On a lighter note the Sun will enter Gemini this evening too, and Mercury/Venus will unite in this sign in the early hours of Saturday, about five hours before the Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius. This is the third and final eclipse of the current series. Again, note that the main eclipse symbolism is about a shift of power, the falling and lifting of shadows, and the emergence of new pictures. Pay close attention to new information, especially the things you didn’t know at the beginning of the week but which turn out to be important in problem solving or decision making of all kinds.
