With Regulus about to move into Virgo, it seems so appropriate and timely as we consider a world ruled by powerful elites and societies ruled by money and power. Now we have Regulus move into the sign of service, resourcefulness, technology, skill and duty, as we consider waste, global resources, efficiency and how to get things working better. This shift seems timely to say the least. We are all called to a service of some kind, helping to shape a better world.
Leo is a Fire sign ruled by the Sun and Virgo an Earth sign ruled by Mercury. The shift from one to the other brings with it a new focus, a new energy.
Here we are ready to bounce off into another astrological year when the Sun enters the first sign of the zodiac, Aries at the March Equinox, Spring in the North, Autumn in the South. Tropical astrologers use this alignment of the Sun crossing the equator to keep our zodiac aligned with the seasons, from which the zodiac originally developed, something we continually need to explain to the uninitiated that try to debase our craft, that our zodiac is no longer aligned with the stars, the constellations from which the zodiac signs developed much of their meaning from
Pluto and its Nodes, their planetary rulers, and aspects to these from other planets, correlate to the root structure within any birth chart. From that root, all else – the South/North Nodes of the Moon, their planetary rulers, and aspects to these points – are ‘birthed’ from that root. It’s like a tree that has branches where the root produces the trunk of the tree, and the trunk then produces branches with leaves. This core root and its branches within the birth chart is treated EQUALLY for it is the very structure of the chart itself
There is much more in the world that unifies us than separates us, as the ripples of uncertainty radiate across the globe. It is the over flow of a chaotic year ending, with the anticipation of what will be in the coming year. These major turning points, the Solstices in our Tropical Astrological methods are always aligned with the cardinal ingresses, when the Sun enters Capricorn and Cancer at the Solstices, and Aries and Libra at the Equinoxes.
As Jupiter enters Libra in September for his once in 12-year visit, the global scene has rarely been in such a state of ‘high tension’! Brexit has revealed a new level of anti-establishment sentiment fuelling the revolutionary urge for change, the force underpinning the 2010’s, as the USA heads toward elections in the midst of anger, confusion & disillusionment, and global terror events are escalating.
Planets are forming hard angular aspects while the Earth will be shadowed by Eclipses. The electromagnetic pull on the Earth at an eclipse it very powerful, added to this fact is that the highest tides are at the New Moon (Solar Eclipse) and high tides also at the Full Moon (Lunar Eclipse). These creates an increase in electromagnetic interference on the earth plane.
To understand it’s influence, we have to examine where this Eclipse will be located in the Zodiac and what major aspects will be made. Virgo is part of the Earthy triplicity, therefor we can expect major events that occur will relate to food, famine, land, health, structure and securities. Virgo itself in mundane astrology
The history of Jupiter in Libra offers us some key moments in our current story with the formation of the EEC in 1957, which then morphed into the EU in 1993 with the Euro currency – (also first World Trade Centre bombing). Then 2004 saw the enlargement of NATO as the EU incorporated most of former Eastern Bloc. During the past 12 years we’ve had the first GFC in 2008, with subsequent controls from central banks who offered massive loans to lesser EU members with debt they could never repay.
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.
