True to US Marine Corps’ famous motto ‘Leave no man behind,’ 19 year old Lance Corporal Myles Kerr sacrifices his race time to run with 9 year old Boden Fuchs who said, ‘Sir, will you please run with me?’ Should we all be so kind to each other.
The previous time Pluto was at the midpoint between Saturn and Chiron, it was for 5+ months! Oct 23, 2012 to the first week of April 2013. They made their closest midpoint/sextile March 22 at less than 1 degree, at ten and eleven degrees of their respective signs! This set is no stranger to us.
A midpoint always has 3 components. The first is the relationship between the two outmost planets, the 2nd and 3rd are the relationships formed by the planet in the middle between them. Sometimes there are no traditional aspects formed at all. They are not 90 degrees square, or 120 degrees trine. They are simply three planets with one equidistant between the other two, whatever the number of degrees that separates them. In your birth chart, any two planets have a midpoint degree whether there is a planet there or not, and it is considered to be a sensitive degree of the nature of the two planets it is mid of, and when progressions or transits activate it, those two natal planets are in turn activated.
In this case, we have planets in traditional relationships, a trine, two sextiles. They are outer planets, that move slowly, and because they are moving so slowly, it is an infrequent aspect, and less frequent yet in these specific signs! Children born with it will have these empowering combinations.
- Saturn in Scorpio trines Chiron in Pisces, renders a recognition of karmic/dharmic strength and wisdom. The previous trines were in Nov 2012 at 4 degrees, and March 2013 at almost 11 degrees. This next exact trine, the 3rd of 5, will be Oct 2 at 10 degrees. The 4th and 5th will be June and Aug 2014 at almost 18 and 17 degrees. You see the degrees of this sequence are spread out, so it has and will activate 3 different areas of your chart, some people and not others at the different times – many will get their turn! But it exists whether it activates our chart or not, and we can all benefit from the deep changes, profound healings of body, psyche and Soul, others make, being models for our own sacred quests. Micro and macro medical advances will stand their tests, or fail, to be eliminated for other progress to be made. Lovingly letting go is a genuine skill, both in business and matters of the heart. Bless and go on in a good way. Tap into the resource of experienced elders. Powerful fantasies may upwell from molten passion, visions bequeathed by the Ancestors. See May 12, 2013 – the first trine.
- Sep 20, at almost 9 degrees, Saturn sextiles Pluto, a priceless combination, the planets being in each others’ signs, Scorpio and Capricorn! This will be the 3rd and last time. Look back to the day after Christmas, Dec 26, 2012, and Mar 8, 2013, at 9 and 11 degrees. The more aligned you are to your core desires, the more successful you will be. That may be famous to your realm of life; it may be living simply, true to yourself and in honor of your gift. You may not be sure yet, what to do, may be in divine progress, exploring and creating as you go. And going may be what it is you do, be! Evolution never stops. Saturn, the Builder, is very ok with ‘practical,’ steady progress. Pluto, won’t give up! Saturn and Pluto both have to do with military, rules, regimentation, death and regeneration. Both can be kind beyond words without ever saying a word. Check on how to age well, leave a meaningful legacy. Bones and blood, power be! Money maker or healer, probably both!
- Chiron sextiles Pluto! Chiron heals with a Centaur laugh, a road trip, and herbs in a basket, sometimes sacrifice! Pluto, the pro, knows you better use the right dose, and if you don’t have psychological readiness for healing, it doesn’t matter what you do. Oh, and you better choose the right timing (Capricorn), know your healing stages too. Ala Kübler Ross, On Death and Dying, there are 5 stages of grief, and they apply to healing as well. Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance. And others add a few more factors to the process. This is a special time to deliberately deepen marriage relationships. Empathy may be keen. Acknowledge differences and divvy up your labors in good Spirit.
Clear the debris, help each other past obstacles. Their obstacle is your/our obstacle. Many Souls are working toward the same direction you are. To Progress and Staying Power!
