2021 opens with a clarity that has been eluding us, shocking, and yet, not surprising.
The Saturn/ Jupiter conjunction of December 21st, 2020 started this with their ingress into Aquarius, ushering humanity's movement into the Air Age.
January’s transits set the stage for the rest of the year and make it clear that we cannot leave the past behind. Pluto is still making its way through the last six degrees of Capricorn until 2025 churning up, and through the underbelly of the structures and conditions of the shadowed past…AND taking the United States through its first Pluto Return.
If you have personal planets from 24 to 30 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra, or Aries, Pluto’s initiation cycle is still making its way to you.
Saturn and Jupiter are moving together through the early degrees of Aquarius lighting up any planets you have at 0-9 degrees of Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio, or Taurus. The Saturn/ Jupiter conjunction introduces the Expansion and Contraction cycle of the labor pains of our rebirthing that become intense as we move into the three Saturn Uranus squares of 2021. More on this in my next post.
But Mars is the star, and the main player kicking off the astrology of year, inciting, and igniting what has been lingering, waiting to shatter and explode. Personally, politically, and collectively.
In this way 2021 continues to move us through primal, ancestral, and collective traumas brought to the surface for transformation and evolution.
The events of January 6 & 7 with Mercury conjunct Pluto, as Mars moving into the 29th degree, or anaretic degree, of Aries, and moving into Taurus as this came to a head on the 7th are a preview of January’s eventful unfolding.
These dates are followed by the New Moon conjunct Pluto in Capricorn on Jan 13th setting an intense and sobering mood for the upcoming lunar cycle.
Moving to the 15th as Uranus stations direct and Jupiter activates more Aquarian energy as it squares Uranus through the 19th. Uranus is disruptive and deeply creative, offering freedom from the known.
When these two giants come together it is a lot of energy to contain. Air is the sign that cannot be contained, therefore we sometimes fracture with too much input.
Stay grounded and take comfort knowing you are not alone in feelings of anxiousness, overwhelm, and just keeping it together. Stay open to entertaining grounded innovative ideas.
With that in mind lets us look at the the big story of the month, Inauguration Day January 20th.
The astrology of the day striking in its energy and possibilities, is dauntingly precarious as Mars, the archetype of all things volatile and activating, conjuncts Uranus and its need for freedom and revolution as the void of course moon moves that 29th degree of Aries which was activated with the events of January 6th.
You cannot make this stuff up. If an astrologer were speaking of the energies for a shocking rebellious uprising this would be at the top of the list. Whatever your perspective there will be something that reflects these attributes. Lest we forget the incoming administration is seen this way to half the country.
It is important to remember that more than one attribute or perspective is always true, especially when we are speaking of transformation. With the Sun at 0 degrees Aquarius (the great Awakener) and Pluto in Capricorn the (transforming entrenched patterns and structures) on the midheaven, this is also the chart of groundbreaking, liberating ideas and ideals faced with the arduous tasks of working through the realities to make it so.
The Inauguration chart is a chart encoded for radical change and liberation
and the struggle for that, harkening back to the founding of this country.
This is the chart for the moment and will resonate through the next four years as we
in the US move through our first Pluto return.
Whatever is launched, unveiled, installed, and established will be continually challenged to reflect the innovative paradigm-shifting potentialities that these collective influences evoke.
This is where WE come in.
I say we because that is the direction, the coming Air age takes us.
The movement from ME to WE is the paradigm shift.
It is the practice of staying awake and moving THROUGH to include everything present.
If the stance of humanity’s frame of reference remains in the old paradigm of us versus them, there is no movement. Spiritual bypassing and denial insure continued pain.
It has been our work and remains our work.
In this way, the astrology of 2021 continues to reflect the history of our time as custodians to ourselves, each other, our country, and our one precious earth.
Next Time: Moving through the Expansion, Contraction Labor Pains of the 2021 Saturn, Uranus Squares.
