Monday May 19th: Mercury-Venus-Saturn Yod and the Silent Authority of the Highest Self and the Beloved in All Things

 
 We are in the middle of a huge Saturn yod (base = Venus (feminine/charm/magic/mystique) + Mercury (Communication/Lower Mind), fundamentally challenging our conception of and relationship with AUTHORITY figures, from patriarchy to our false images of G-d to our own father to our Husband/Lover-Ruler archetype … out of this we will emerge entirely Subervient to our Own HIghest self which seamlessly submits to all Windows of Opportunity presented to it Lovingly from the Creator, the Image of the Beloved Beholden in Everything

February-in-waiting: the dance of the sun and Mercury retrograde and the debt ceiling delay

Update: It looks like the debt ceiling has been suspended until the Ides of March. I’m making slight changes to the post to account for how the transits this month could play into what us happening behind the scenes, since the can has been kicked down the road, yet again.

Business Insider reports:

House Republicans will hold a special meeting Monday night [February 10th] to determine their path forward on the debt ceiling, and it’ll be crucial for a deal before the Feb. 27 deadline.

The next morning, Tuesday, February 7th, the sun squares Saturn at 23 Aquarius/Scorpio @ 9am. Boehner announces he’s ready to go along with a suspension deal with no policy strings attached.

Let’s look at some important landmarks this month (full January-April aspect list here).

Friday February 14th features a full moon at 26 Leo/Aquarius. Then, the next day, on Saturday, the sun will be conjunct Mercury at 12:21pm–which are the same numbers – 12 degrees 21 minutes – as the inferior conjunction of the sun and Venus on January 11th. For those who have been watching, that was the beginning of the intermediate age which will usher in the age of Aquarius. For those who have eyes to see, the changes are already underway and accelerating at a dizzying pace.

Remember, Mercury is in retrograde, which is what “enables” it to meet the sun again, this time in Aquarius. Mercury and the sun were last “even” back at the end of December in Capricorn. Mercury entered Capricorn on December 24th, three days after the winter solstice. Since meeting the sun on the 28th, Mercury has been making its way ahead of the sun through Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces, until it went retrograde the day before the Olympics at 1:44p.m at 3 Pisces. Mercury’s current retrograde brings it back through Aquarius until it meets the sun on the full moon / Valentine’s Day at 27 Aquarius.)

At the same time as the sun-Mercury retrograde conjunction on Saturday, a 62-hour maintenance shutdown of a Social Security Administration computer system will commence, according to Yahoo news:

The Social Security computer system will be down from 3 p.m. EST (2000 GMT) on Saturday until 5 a.m. EST (1000 GMT) on Tuesday, February 18, CMS said.

Interestingly, the 18th features an important astrological landmark as well, even though it refers not to any celestial body’s position but rather to a mathematical calculation important to upcoming eclipses. On the morning of the 18th, the lunar node enters Libra–a cardinal sign, setting eclipse themes to Libra/Aries and away from Taurus/Scoprio (sigh of relief). On a macro scale this involves struggles and resolutions relating to the I-You binary/trajectory. In a transcendant sense, the eclipses bring our original soul being closer to a harmonization of the needs of the ego and the soul for freedom and peace.

Yet even more compelling perhaps is the Mercury-Saturn square on the 18th at 23 Aquarius/Scorpio, at 11:11pm on Tuesday night (PST). The Aquarius-Scorpio square was featured in the Sun/Saturn square which opened this post, framing the meeting tonight (Feb 10th). Sparks fly (in a dicey way) between Mercury’s love of speed and efficiency, and Saturn’s clamping down and closing doors.

A week later, with two days remaining before the “debt ceiling deadline” on the 27th, Jupiter squares Uranus at 10 degrees 33 minutes Aries / Cancer. This Jupiter-Uranus square is part of a sequence of the heavenly arrangement of a grand cardinal cross between Jupiter, Uranus, Mars and Pluto which will become exact at 13 degrees on April 22, 2014:

There are a few important things to note about this step towards the April square. The Jupiter-Uranus element of the square involves volatility and bubbles. At ten degrees, it heralds back to the first few weeks of January centering around 1/11 when those with eyes to see saw headlines which signaled a game-change. The last week of February will present itself as yet another chapter in an epic story going much further back than we knew, and reaching to futures even more far off than we imagined. This will accelerate even more when this square reaches 13 degrees and reveals itself even to the blind.

Finally, the day after the debt ceiling, Mercury again goes direct on the 28th at 18 degrees Aquarius. On March 1st, Mars goes into retrograde, starting the countdown to the April square, which will lock into place when Mars reaches 13 degrees Libra.

With the eclipses kicking off on April 15th and the square locking into place on April 22nd, all sides will be emboldened. What happens in this time should give those with eyes to see a very good sense for what is in store in the two-year eclipse period leading up to the jubilee year of 5777 and fireworks of 2017.

G-d bless!

New moon Aquarius / Rosh Chodesh Adar Alef (the 13th month) / Venus goes direct @ 13 Capricorn

1/30 New moon @ 10 Aquarius – the new crescent will mark the new month of Adar I, the 13th month inserted into the calendar to align the solar and lunar cycles.

1/31 Jupiter (Cancer) square Pluto (Capricorn) at 12 degrees – a landmark towards the exact cross in April. Jupiter goes direct again on Mar 6 which allows for another exact square. Venus is close by at 13 Capricorn, where the exact cardinal cross will take place in April.

Venus Direct Yet Venus retrorgrade does not take Venus to 12 Capricorn where the Jupiter-Pluto square is taking place. Rather, 12 hours after the Jupiter-Pluto square, Venus goes direct again at 13*34′ Capricorn and begins moving ahead through the sign, moving towards the sun, trailing as the morning star, and retracing the route it has been on since late December.

Sun quincunx Jupiter 12 Aquarius/Cancer – the Jupiter-Pluto square is compounded by another uneasy aspect at the 12th degree, bridging fixed air and cardinal water.

Also on the 31st, Mercury the messenger enters Pisces the subconscious.
