Hello Everyone, and Happy Spring!
I am reflecting on the movement of the outer planets over the last little while. The movement of the outer planets is slower and longer than that of the planets closer to earth. Thus, the transits hang around us for a longer period of time, and have a more global impact.
In November 2008, Pluto moved into Capricorn. Pluto is the planet associated with cleaning up, deep cleansing, healing, and the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. Moving through Capricorn, the realm associated with government, "systems", business, and so forth, we have seen a lot of corruption exposed. Our economy has needed to shift so that balance can be regained. Pluto always cleans house for a deeper reason, even though we cannot always see it that way. Pluto will continue to transit Capricorn until 2024.
In April, Neptune moved into Pisces, after a 14 year stay in Aquarius. Neptune is the ruler of Pisces and so is right at home in this sign. This relates to the psychic and intuitive realms, peeling away layers of consciousness, and the healing arts. In addition, Neptune/Pisces can be used to escape through drugs or alcohol or other media, so be careful and alert. Pay attention to your intuitions and dreams during this cycle. Hopefully this will assist humanity in deepening compassion for the earth and for other humans and creatures on the planet, for Pisces is capable of great empathy for others.
In March, Uranus moved into Aries. While transiting Pisces, we saw a revolution take place in the healing arts, where yoga became mainstream and Reiki is now practiced in health clinics and hospitals. We can talk about feng shui at the office and people nod and understand. These are topics that, back in the day, were reserved for quiet back rooms. New ground has been broken on this issue and more healing tools are available to us: the mainstream and the mystery meet. With Uranus moving into Aries, there is much supporting energy in the ethers for new projects: not old projects, redone - but new. What does your heart yearn to manifest in this life? Here is a window of opportunity that can support you! Put some foundation under those dreams!
So as we go forward now, what I sense from these outer planet transits is so much change in the air! We may not always see the changes right away, but they are occurring! Just as we cannot see the air that we need to breathe in any moment, we must trust the healing process that is alive in us all. Much love and God Bless you all.
