In the morning, June 26, thus following the opening of the spiritual portal of Solstice, a partial lunar eclipse at 4° Capricorn conjuncts Pluto, adding a very personal & emotional connection to the powerful energies of the outer & social planets and activates a powerful astrological Cardinal Grand Cross. A Grand Cross is when at least four planets occupy astrological positions that square each other – like the four points of a cross. Tomorrow, the placements are in Cardinal signs denoting new beginnings, instead of 4 planets, over the course of the next month, there are 7 planetary bodies involved. On this occasion the conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus in Aries and the square between Uranus and Pluto in Capricorn. This rare and profound relationship ushers the potential of socio-economic transformation in a death-rebirth, dissolution-resolution process. If your own personal Sun and Moon- as mine are!- are aligned with it, you will be especially challenged by this process. Jupiter/Uranus conjunction takes place every 14 years and marks the end of a great cycle. For me, as for many people, it has created the feeling that I am in a cocoon, the caterpillar that I have been for this last cycle has dissolved and the potential butterfly that I may become, has yet to be. By the time the conjunction becomes exact again for its final energetic impulse on September 18, the Grand Cross will have moved on and so the new beginnings will be starting to manifest. One of the aspects of this alignment that may be very significant is the emergence into the mainstream of worldview that has been percolating through the holistic movement for so long. A paradigm of the oneness of the Cosmos as co-creation of cosmic mind- and a new vision based on raising of our consciousness rather than specific teachings, understanding rather than ‘belief’.
