“When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius” The Fifth Dimension
Today Saturn squares Uranus exactly for the first of three times this year. This influence which will be with us throughout the year, is about the tension between holding on and letting go. It is very much about what the Peruvian shamans call “the snake shedding her skin” to describe the process of personal evolution. It’s about letting go of outdated ways of thinking and acting to move forward in a more free and evolved direction. This applies both personally and collectively.
Mercury and Jupiter are traveling together now indicating a good time to broaden thinking and expand awareness. The advent of the Age of Aquarius involves the evolution to higher level consciousness about the way we inhabit the planet. It will not happen automatically but is dependent on individuals and groups manifesting a more idealistic and humane vision of how life can be. We can all be part of this.
Mercury is slowing down to station direct and end the retrograde period on Saturday 2/20. Do raise awareness about any information that may surface before the station and for several days following because this time frame is associated with a culmination of wisdom.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A forest fire finally quenched.”
