From January 2016’s Overview … I’m reminded of the Who’s “I Won’t be Fooled Again” and my impulse, at that time, to write Don’t be so sure, this year. This is the beginning of a three month period where more will be understood… or misunderstood… during the most influential transit of 2016.
This square happens as Neptune is changing direction, which makes this an even more significant transit, if it wasn’t already a pretty big deal.
We mustn’t forget that the energy of the Mutable T-square is also active and influential as a whole, but not exact. The Mutable T-Square is Jupiter in Virgo opposing Neptune in Pisces and both are square Saturn in Sagittarius. Today, we’ll focus on the Neptune/Saturn square, because that is the exact aspect this month.
If 12 degrees, especially in mutable signs, is potent in your own birth map, well, then it would be hard to imagine, it not being noticeable in some way in your life.
How might you become aware of this influence? Notice how structure and imagination show up in personal life or in the media. Where is one foot in reality and the other in illusion or even delusion? Where is responsibility being taken? Where is it avoided or a picture painted that does not match reality?
We can swing from illusion to practicality. If we only look to external references, we may be persuaded to believe what is not true.
The Last Quarter Square is a time to either re-establish a pattern or process or decide to let it go. We are urged to choose what is “right” from Saturn’s perspective and opt for spiritual integrity when combined with Neptune.
Other clues to Saturn & Neptune’s influence in June 2016.
What was transpiring in November 2015? In the media, in countries’ governments, in households, high attention was paid to the Syrian refugee crisis.
After last month, here in Canada, we have 10,000 evacuees, from the Ft. McMurray, Alberta fires, who are dealing with: What is next? The Executive Director of the Alberta Emergency Management Services called it “managed chaos.” Grieving what was lost (Neptune) is set aside as the practicalities are considered. Ideally, the vision of Saturn in Sagittarius, takes hold, but may be a long time in establishing substance.
What about in your world? There is good chance of a repetition of themes from November 2015, even if not exactly the same.
If, at the first peak in November 2015, there was more heaviness, seriousness, and strategizing, then maybe this time Neptune will reveal itself more dominantly with patterns of illusiveness, confusion, escapism, fantasizing, grief or fear.
Some possibilities this period include something hidden being revealed. What appears ‘real’ is a lie. Images may tell a story which hook us into fear. I’m reminded of a high school English teacher who taught us about subliminal messages in marketing images.
Can we please be more positive?
If aligned with Truth and devoted to integrity, this becomes a global growth period. We could use the word spiritual, but one doesn’t need to label oneself as spiritual to know right and wrong.
Imagine (Neptune) countries stepping up to the plate and taking responsibility to do what is possible to alleviate global crisis including Neptunian weather changes. Envision (Neptune) individuals coming into personal integrity, listening to their Soul’s voice and making a determined resolution to follow dreams.
Optimism grows later in the June with a grounded Jupiter/Pluto trine in earth signs. And, our conviction and courage get a boost when Mars goes direct at the end of the month. Energetically there is an impulse to ‘do.’
In Scorpio, that “doing” includes merging with something one does not possess and can only experience through osmosis, attachment, sharing or intimacy. Passion returns.
Mars Direct also means assertively aiming for the bottom-line, with a controlled gut instinct. This is helpful as a personal point of power during this both contradictory and inspirational time.
