“To change something build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.” Buckminster Fuller
“Saturn lays the tracks for the reality train to follow.” Caroline W. Casey
Uranus, the planet of innovation and of fututristic thinking is strong in the sky this week as the Sun and Venus move up to a harmonious trine with it. Many shamanic traditions hold the belief that there is a stream of information which can come to us from the future. This conflicts with the more widespread belief in our time that information comes from the past.
Uranus has a trickster energy to it and the long held maxim in astrology for Uranus transits is “expect the unexpected.” With the Sun and Venus involved there is an opportunity to approach life, love, pleasure and abundance from a new or unexpected perspective. It is wise to be open to any intuitions that come your way in this realm.
Saturn will ingress into the sign of Capricorn – a sign Saturn is very much in sync with – on Dec 19. This will be helpful in terms of creating a very solid foundation for any new initiatives and for proceeding pragmatically with plans. Do make time your ally.
We are coming up to the time of the Winter Solstice on Dec 21. This marks a powerful time of the year. Maud Gonne, the inspiration for many of William Butler Yeats love poems, was born at the exact moment of the Winter Solstice, December 21, 1866. Being born at this auspicious time was regarded in astrological circles as akin to a “birth time of the gods.” The Irish people believed she was the woman foretold in Irish history – the “Queen of the Fairies” who would come and preach the revolt and encourage the Irish people to rise up against the British. When she appeared publicly people would kiss the hem of her gown. She was active in saving the lives and homes of many of the Irish people.
One of the Sabian symbols for the Saturn’s ingress into Capricorn is, “A indigenous chief claims recognition from the assembled tribe.” And one of the symbols for Uranus now is, “The music of the spheres.”
