January 2023 Quarterly Astrological Update

January 2023 Quarterly Astrological Update

Hello! It has been awhile, and I’m returning to resume news of upcoming cycles. Here we go!

We are on the verge of a new Pluto in Aquarius cycle-of-three, a highly influential 735-year-long-cycle. The cycle-of-three began in 1286 with the medieval awakening; its second phase began in 1532 and completed in 1553 when Copernicus established the Sun as our astronomical center. Then freedom broke out in 1777 amidst the American and French revolutions. With the new three-part Pluto in Aquarius cycle beginning this March, I think we will move beyond our solar system to explore the Milky Way, a galactic perspective.

Pluto signifies deep transformation in society that inspires our souls to reveal greater truth. Lucid views into higher dimensions will come as Pluto moves into Aquarius right after this Spring Equinox—Pluto probes deep; Aquarius seeks freedom. We are beyond the Age of Pisces and in the early stages of the Age of Aquarius. On December 23, 2020, a potent turning point occurred when Saturn conjoined Jupiter in 0 degrees Aquarius, which inaugurated a series of twenty-year Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions in air signs for the upcoming two hundred years. This entry into air two years ago called out the nascent themes of the Aquarian Age—soul infusion, freedom, and the desire for unity. Pluto in Aquarius will ignite these themes this spring.

Many have endured great pain and contraction since early 2020 as crumbling Piscean patterns exposed the corruption of autocratic leaders and old religions. Soon Pluto’s initial dip into Aquarius—March 23 through June 11, 2023—will melt away useless patterns, such as the fear, confusion, and lies that dominated the collective mind during the Covid-19 debacle. Take careful note as new ideas replace old patterns during this formative period from the Spring Equinox to the Summer Solstice. Consider them seriously before Pluto goes back into Capricorn during the summer and fall and be ready for Pluto in Aquarius, 2024 to 2044.

To imagine what Pluto in Aquarius could inspire, we need to see how the transits of Saturn and Uranus have made us struggle between control and freedom for the last few years. But now, Aquarius is demanding freedom; forget all the control! Since Pluto can be as stubborn as a mule, we must prepare ourselves for Pluto’s twenty years in Aquarius. Also, Saturn moves into Pisces on March 7, 2023, which will soften control. Going back over the last few years, Saturn in Aquarius squared Uranus in Taurus three times during 2021, and this square was extremely close during 2022. Saturn rules structure and form and Uranus rules revolution and change, so when they squared (a 90-degree angle), we were paralyzed by the huge struggle between control and freedom. Reviewing your life during 2021/22 during this obdurate square, did you ever feel like a racehorse yanked back by a tight bridle but you didn’t know who held the reins? Did you fumble and falter and give up caring about your life? This was visible in the C-19 public health fiasco as zealous bureaucrats crawled out of rat holes with their orders. People felt deep frustration and confusion over losing their freedom. This struggle will ease as spirit infuses the next three years during Saturn in Pisces.

Considering how to handle this shift of the “outer-planet forces,” prepare yourself for chaos because we’ve all been isolated and separated by the control/freedom conflict. Saturn and Neptune in Pisces will awaken desires for unity as Aquarius’s freedom reveals Pluto’s truth. We’re getting out of jail to face the madness of crowds! You may feel like you’re losing your soul if you just obey the rules. If you mindlessly followed rules that seemed to come down from the sky—social distancing, masking, vaccine mandates and quarantines—things have changed! Maybe you’re already questioning the validity and hidden purposes of these rules? Pluto’s deepest quest is Truth.

As I write, many people suspect the mRNA jabs have caused a lot of disease and death. Are you frustrated by the absence of inquiry? This is not about taking sides; it is about seeing all the sides. Each person’s stance must be respected since we exist together in the dark and the light; however, it’s time for assessment. It’s time to examine this crime scene to be able to participate in the next twenty years of creative change during Pluto in Aquarius. For example, American medical practice and public health were deteriorating before the Covid-19 disaster, and alternative healing practices were growing. Perhaps, it is time for them to join hands to deal with the health crisis?

This opening is brief, but with each season I will build on it. For the Spring Equinox, I will be looking at some highly unusual celestial mechanics that suggest a tremendous shift that is building through 2027. This spring—with Saturn and Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Aquarius—heralds the opening of some unusual harmonic cycles, which could be a great turning for many of us. I highlight Pluto in Aquarius as the beginning of radical changes we can use to develop new patterns and let our souls lead us as they should! Lastly, Pluto in Aquarius will oppose natal Pluto for the Pluto-in-Leo generation born 1938-1957. If that’s your generation, prepare to help with this transition! If you are not going to lead, please offer the younger generation your seat. Each person is going to matter more than we can imagine.

July 2021: Cosmic Contact Interview with Regina Meredith

July 24, 2021: Cosmic Contact: Goodbye Pisces, Hello Aquarius with Barbara Hand Clow

In Regina Meredith’s interview with Barbara Handclow, Regina and Barbara talk about alien and inter-dimensional influence over humanity. From the early warnings of Carl Jung, to the grandfather of rocket science, Vernatdot Von Braun, the possibility of Earth continuing to live and evolve without these external influences seems unlikely. Barbara’s latest work confirms these ideas and goes on to say that with the new age of Aquarius humanity is entering, there is actually, no way to avoid cosmic contact. The question is, are we going to do so consciously and wisely, or be led around like sheep?

May 2021: Neptune: The Elephant in the Room

 with Regina Meredith and Barbara Hand Clow

My famously reclusive friend, Barbara Hand Clow, has come out of her sanctuary to share the story of Neptune and why we’re in such a state of mass insanity. With the next key astrological date of June 14, 2021, upon us, it’s important to know the influences we are all under so we can take back our mental and spiritual sovereignty by taking the time to understand what’s been brewing in our unconscious. The most important tool we have at our disposal to free ourselves from the insanity is our connection to our own soul or higher mind. This is a timely and clear conversation about cosmic patterns demanding our clarity, and even rebellion.
