THIS IS GOING to be a unique month and
one of the main themes of it, even though
it's the watery Pisces time, is of fire; its
expressive and liberating qualities, its
wounded manifestations and its healing.
And it's a time of new beginnings with
abundant support for transformative change
On a bigger cyclic level, the great mover
and shaker Uranus enters Aries proper
during the month, firing up the Ram for the
next seven years. Just watch the house(s)
you have Aries in start to move, escalating
the voltage for change, having already been
empowered by Jupiter. This combination,
while unstable and dramatic, represents
an irresistible urge towards freedom of
expression, individualism and creative
potency. And in a sign that is not known for
its patience, one that loves a new challenge!
We need then to make room for its rightful
place is this current daemon, otherwise we
can expect increasing levels of restlessness
and heightened tension, with the potential
for more volcanic eruptions, major
disruptions and wild outbursts.
In crossing into Aries, Uranus also
squares the Nodes of the Moon, with the
North Node in its general retrograde motion
itself entering Sagittarius, another fire sign,
where it will be for the next 18 months. Over
the years, I've come to see that any major
planet squaring the Nodes is an important
turning point in the collective and/or our
personal journey, as the planet is at the
midpoint between the two. The change or
process represented by the planet tests and
challenges the old in us, derived from the
past (South Node), while strongly energising
and initiating us into the new, the possibilities
of the future (North Node).
In this case, the Uranian urge for radical
change and its awakening of Arian fire,
valid processes in themselves, also aims to
crack open behaviour patterns, habits and
tendencies that are familiar on a soul level
over lifetimes, while activating more exalted
skills, knowledge and abilities accumulated
over many lives. Simultaneously, it opens
up more of the mysteries of our future
direction contained in the North Node,
whether personally or collectively, by pro-
ducing inner and outer changes that
make this more conscious.
With Jupiter, Uranus and the North Node
in fire signs then, the element is getting
more than enough encouragement. Jupiter,
though, while streaking through Aries, will
get seriously challenged as he goes head
to head with his old nemesis Saturn in the
opposite sign of Libra, at the end of the
month. This confrontation between new
and old, innovation and conservation, passion
and realism is known for its frustration but
also for timely reality checks. Aries is not
the best at disciplined, careful, cautious
preparation, especially when its passion and
inspiration is up, something that trips up
even the most deserving of schemes. Saturn,
even as he resists, is also there to rebalance
On a worldlier note, both Saturn and
Jupiter are connected to financial systems
and this opposition is a gentler version of
the Uranus/Saturn opposition that triggered
the global financial crises. So we can expect
some issues, challenges and change again
that may manifest as further "adjustments".
At the very least we're likely to get some
feedback as to the effectiveness of the
deconstruction processes of the last years.
Alongside this however, are subtler and,
in some ways, more slippery processes
around wounded fire energy, represented
by the Sun in early Pisces conjunct Mars
and Chiron in the same sign. With all its
trademark sensitivity, gentleness, compassion
and empathy, Pisces swims in an ocean of
emotional energy from where it draws its
natural spiritual and creative gifts.
This is not an easy place for Mars, who
is one of the "fuel" planets for fire in general
and specifically for Aries. In Pisces, the old
god of war gets swamped in the fathomless
emotionality and sensitivity of the Fish
and his urge to provide us with assertive,
courageous, forthright action is, at the very
least, tempered by its wateriness and is often
sublimated or anaesthetised. Ask any Mars
in Pisces individual about their struggles
and challenges to assert, set boundaries or
express their anger cleanly and clearly.
At its best, it is an amazing position for
Mars because it also represents the possibility
for healthy expression of the red planet,
coupled brilliantly with the subtlety and
sensitivity of Pisces, making it an effective
force moving with heightened awareness.
The journey towards this goal includes the
necessity of pulling the red-bloodedness of
Mars out of the inner swamps, of owning
one's anger so that is doesn't leak out in
devious, seductive and self sabotaging ways,
of coming face to face with one's inner
Minotaur. And this is the very gift of Chiron
conjunct Mars in this month's chart, an
almost perfect line up for this work, as
Chiron is a part of self highly adept at
creating situations to activate this wounded
masculine warrior and its healing.
So we look like getting a view of both
sides of fire, its exaltation and its shadow,
and there is no lack of supportive power
in making the best use of what is on offer.
The Chiron, Mars, Sun combination has
brilliant sextiles to Pluto, while the expansive
Jupiter squares the same. Jupiter/Pluto
combinations, even the tougher ones, are
among the best of transformative transits,
the deep shadow work of Pluto, never easy
to get moving, combines with the
magnanimous, abundant energies of
Jupiter. The deep work flows better, more
