Veracity, association, trustworthiness and self-development are cornerstones of normality. In astrology these are presented in the symbology of the ‘inner planets’ (respectively) Mercury, Venus/Mars, Saturn and Jupiter.
These cornerstones are then graphically displayed in birth chart colourings of the self as represented by the Sun sign and reflected in the emotional qualities of the Moon, along with the Sun and Moon’s connections to the inner (and outer) planets.
The outer planets and the asteroids add flavour to the complexity of our being: Uranus heralds eureka moments and change; Neptune emphasises ideals and imaginary projections; Pluto marks penetrative thought and transformations.
No two people have exactly the same understanding of everything since genetic markers, even in identical twins, differ to some degree. My response to the most trivial of events will be in some way different to yours; such is the nature of the evolving self – much in the way of String Theory’s Multiple Universes.
These personal bubbles of understanding grow larger throughout life, with the early life having a strong influence on directional tendencies as noted in astrology’s ‘day for a year’ method of progressed personal planets; along with the importance of seminal moments of extraordinary experience.
String Theory’s idea of many worlds is compatible with progressions being an interlinking of time references, in the way of Jung’s synchronicity theory, and quantum physicist Erwin Schrödinger’s concept of life as fractals repeated at different scales.
Astrology starts with a birth chart which, following birth, is triggered by the movement of the universe within which the individual grows – layer on layer, bubble on bubble - creating experience through understandings of decisions made.
The causative formation of the planets at any one time is an imprint from the creative force within which we live – astrology being a language of ‘God’, an encrypted tongue with the potential for self-understanding and development.
In 576 BC the planets Pluto, Neptune and Uranus were conjunct, something that happens every 4,000 years or so.
This was a time when Athenian lawmaker Solon laid the foundations of western democracy.
In 1891/92 Neptune moved conjunct Pluto in Gemini and this corresponded with a surge in economic growth led by the USA’s production of steel (Pluto), transport by rail (Gemini) and the expansion of the oil industry as a seemingly efficient source of power (Neptune).
In 1993 Uranus got together with Neptune: the World Trade Centre got bombed as did Bombay, both for ideological reasons (Uranus); a holocaust Memorial was erected (Neptune); a peace accord between Palestine and Israel was brokered (Neptune); Mandela and de Clerk won Nobel peace prizes (Neptune); and Bill Clinton was elected (Uranus); Clinton being the man who in 1999 rescinded the Glass–Steagall Act which led to the 2008 economic collapse and the current runaway neoliberal approach to economics.
In 2008 Pluto - planet of transformation - entered Capricorn, the sign of material supremacy. If nothing needed transforming then nothing would have happened, but we have global warming caused by economic growth which involves planetary degradation on multiple levels.
Stock markets collapsed and the monetary system teetered on the edge of an abyss - but nothing changed and more paper money was injected into the US economy. Global warming continued as a result of a frenzied affluence that created a tourism bubble where the well-off looked down upon the not so well-off.
The flow of the Universe can be likened to the mythical ‘force’ referred to in the Star Wars films; and we are currently witnessing a disturbance in the force, as climate change, religious and ethnic discriminations, move us away from normal flow and into self-oriented chaos. In the flow of the matrix this is a cyclical event that marks the crumbling of an era and the promise of corrective reform to come.
Points in time retain their significance and are influenced by future planetary transits. In the case of the Neptune/Uranus conjunction there are those born around 1993 that will be directly influenced by Pluto’s 2018 transit of these points, but there is also a myriad of interconnected coincidences within the matrix that will be triggered throughout 2018.
Then the big year 2020, when the ruler of Capricorn, Saturn, catches up with Pluto in Capricorn, later to be joined by expansive Jupiter. In 2020 Pluto is in its last few degrees of Capricorn, something has to crack. Planet Earth is home to more than materialistic humans; there is more at stake than comfortable human lifestyles.
The human race has come a long way in a short time and we have inhabited every corner of our Mother Earth. Our driving force being a primary instinctual force of life - to better the self.
Unfortunately this principle leads to infestations whenever left unchecked by coinhabitants. We have reached this point and it appears that corrective measures are shortly to come into play; given our ability to survive surely there must be a way out of this mist of material euphoria.
