No doubt many of us are feeling the uncertainty and extremity of the culminating mutable cross. The mutable cross is the alignment of three major planets that have been in this formation in and out of intensity since the end of last year, when Jupiter and Saturn first made a square, then Jupiter opposed Neptune and then Saturn squared Neptune, the faster moving planet always applying to create the aspect. Yet this week Venus and the Sun join this mutable line up to form…

This New Moon in the social sign of Gemini is conjunct flirtatious, flighty and witty Venus in Gemini, making this a great time to get out and meet new people and develop those networks. There is definitely a sense of the ‘social butterfly’ at play during this New Moon but don’t be fooled by surface appearances as the Sun, Moon & Venus conjunction is part of a greater planetary pattern known as a, ‘Mutable Grand Cross’.
In 2015, many financial astrologers predicted that the global economy would start to recede; at the same time, bankers and economists, on the contrary, were expecting the economy to revive or the recession to come to an end. The prediction of astrologers is indeed on solid ground. In 2015 and 2016, Jupiter-Saturn and Saturn-Neptune, both of which are related to economic development, would respectively form squares while, coincidentally, both of them will be in the last square of their respective synodic cycles.
Venus and her cycle is by far the most interesting and rhythmic of all planetary cycles, besides that of the lunation cycle which is much quicker and transient, the Venus cycle is made up of 8 year, 4 year, 9.5month and 19 month cycles, which we can use to plan, incubate, create, remember and work with.
The timing of the Venus cycle. 9.5 months (plus a few days)– A conjunction with the Sun occurs every 9.5 months alternating from inferior to exterior conjunction
19 months – 1.6 years = 584 days= One synodic cycle of Venus
Jeff Lieberman, an MIT-trained artist, scientist and engineer, makes a scientific argument for mystical experience. He asks us to challenge our perception of what we are, our relationship to the universe, and our relationship to one another. Our minds are “thought-generating machines.” What we would happen if we could turn off the machine? If we could transcend our individual experience of the world?
The Red planet, conjuncts the White, Full Sagittarius Blue Moon. This seems very patriotic, a subject that Sagittarius rules. From APOLLO the Sun’s perspective, the earth is swallowing /eclipsing Mars the warrior planet. This is a very powerful image of the FEMININE EARTH MOTHER assimilating the warrior God. The old boy’s macho warrior energy is dying and a new softer Masculine is being born. SATURN Retrograde is aligned with ANTARES the Rival of Mars in an isosceles triangle formation in the skies
As both Mercury & Venus are between us (earth) and the Sun, they pass between us periodically creating ‘eclipses’. Because they are so small they don’t block the Sun’s light so are not generally noticed down here on Earth. But they are considered quite ‘rare’ and when you check the above dates of previous Mercury eclipses the historical associations are very powerful in terms of social change.
This New Moon in Taurus is a great time to get grounded in the Earth and in our bodies and to work steadfastly on the foundations of our new life. You can feel the full power of ‘the Bull’ in this Taurean New Moon, with the New Moon making a ‘Grand (Earth) Trine’ out to Retrograde Pluto and (Stationary) Retrograde Jupiter. There is so much raw and vital earth power in this grand trine for work, for building and for growing.
The Jupiter- Saturn squares of 2016 offer us an opportunity to finally fine tune the application of our beliefs and philosophies to our work, our daily habits, and to our self care. It’s a clarion call to `walk our talk,’ even if that walk feels as though we are navigating a tightrope. This is a call to action to get serious (Saturn) about what we say is our highest purpose ( Jupiter). It’s time to get to work; reformat, restructure and create habits which are reflective of our deeply held beliefs.
April 22nd 2016 Venus, the goddess of beauty and love, will conjunct Uranus, the liberator. Although this is a fast moving aspect, it is a very interesting and important one, especially since Mars, Venus’ counterpart, is now retrograde and Venus is in his sign, Aries. This dynamic puts both into play and their fascinating polarity will yet again be a reality in our lives.
