June 18 to 21 Gemini finishes with Mercury, Gemini’s planet, walking through a cardinal Grand Square with Uranus, Pluto, and Saturn. That same Grand Square will be activated two more times, as the Sun in Cancer starts through June 26 to July 2, followed by Venus in Cancer July 7 to 13. During Leo, Saturn having moved on, Mars will T Square Uranus and Pluto August 9/10, giving the final ferocious kick, activation complete! So, four planets, four different ways of doing, will activate the Uranus/Pluto square. Mercury, the communicator first, opening channels. The Sun brightening the options, making it personal. Venus questions true values, what we want. Mars says, OK, let’s do it! The Uranus square Pluto is significant because it is hovering in close range now, and makes SEVEN exact aspects starting June 23, 2012 on through March 16, 2015! 2013 and 2015 the same four planets will activate the Uranus/Pluto square but not as intensely in such close order as this time. So this is it! These aspect sets are bringing our attention to the big square. Pay good attention because it’s not going away anytime soon! Use it to your advantage!
Cardinal signs are activators. They push. Aries, Libra; Cancer, Capricorn. Relationships, your life work are important. Family and career. Self and others. A Grand Square calls for balances. Uranus in Aries wants the freedom to evolve. Uranus and Pluto are interested in research, what makes the inner, Pluto, and outer, Uranus, Universes tick. Pluto in Capricorn has tremendous grit, wants death-defying intimacy, wants to heal you, clear the environment, restore potent life and order in a good way, to live well in elder years. Saturn is the builder, the scientist, law-maker, structures the format, marks the time it takes, truly works hard. Long standing political leaders, the economy, governments, fuels and resources will be changing, growing pains well worth it! Letting go of some of the past frees us from our thinking habits. Some of the past needs protection during the renovation.
Astronomically, little is known about QuickSilver Mercury. The second spacecraft to map it is the MESSENGER , which attained orbit around Mercury on March 17, 2011. It is mapping the rest of the planet that Mariner 10 didn’t get to finish in 1975, 36 years ago! Mercury has been thought to be a bit of a trouble-maker, akin to Coyote in Native American medicine. Trouble and trickster. Yet, it comes out right. It was only a pinch and a giggle, a distraction, a diversion, having fun, but creating a longing in the back of the mind, to be back on track after all, a seeing of the difference between what is ‘wanted’ and what is true. Learning dance. Step by step…..
