“The fog comes in
on little cat feet
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
And then moves on. ” Carl Sandburg
“What seas, what shores, what grey rocks and what islands
What water lapping the bow
And scent of pine and wood thrush singing through the
What images return
O my daughter.” TS Eliot
Today is the second exact square of Uranus and Saturn – the third and final square to come on December 24. In astrology Uranus is the rebel, the maverick, the outsider, the one who loves freedom and doesn’t necessarily respect traditional forms of authority. Saturn represents law and order and the status quo and tradition. Saturn represents the past, Uranus the future. Uranus governs technology, computers and the internet. Uranus disrupts outdated systems – sometimes in ways that are surprising.
But Uranus also governs innovation. This alignment is in effect throughout the year and provides excellent timing to think about what is no longer needed in your life in or what is in need of an update. And what kind of changes you can make in your life that lead to a better, more innovative future.
Jupiter and Neptune are strong influences in the sky now as they both slow down to station retrograde – Jupiter on the June 20th and Neptune on the 25th. Mercury stations direct on the 22nd ending the retrograde period – right in the middle of these two stations. This is a good time for dreams, creative projects and spiritual growth. But do be aware the Trickster is about – with Mercury retrograde in Gemini , so it’s best to double check that communications are clear as Neptune, the planet governing fog, and Jupiter the planet of excess and exaggeration are both major players this week.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A materializing medium giving a seance.”
