Pallas Athene, the Sun and Neptune

“To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”  Buckminster Fuller

This week Pallas Athene, the goddess of justice, advocacy and diplomacy, entered the sign of Aquarius.  On the Winter Solstice Saturn and Jupiter will join her in this sign of inventiveness and innovation- ushering  in a new twenty year era.

This week the Sun in Sagittarius is moving up to a square with Neptune, the planet of dreams and illusions. This aspect can blur thinking and add some confusion to the mix. It does bode well for dreams, creativity and spiritual work.

Pluto, the Lord of the Underworld and Eris, the asteroid of discord are making their final square  this week. Pluto and Eris are associated with much of the upheaval we have seen the past several years. Although widely known as the asteroid of discord, Eris is also a female warrior goddess who is not afraid to reveal the shadow or hidden side of things to effect change.

Fiery Mars in Aries will be making a harmonious aspect to the Sun in Sagittarius. This is a high energy aspect and good for taking action – as long as the goals are clear and impulsiveness is avoided- given Neptune’s strong influence this week.

The Sun is moving up to a conjunction with the South Node of past life karma. This can be a time when it’s possible to see more clearly old unproductive thought and behavior patterns from the past.

We are moving into a new era.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A magic carpet hovers over the depressing reality of everyday life in an industrial area.
