For those of you wondering why the energy has shifted somewhat – the Near-Grand Sextile that we’ve been feeling has momentarily broken. As Juno continues her movement through Cancer, and Mercury speeds away from her – the trine between them ceases to be. Within the next few days, a new trine – and so – a new Near-Grand Sextile will form, this time with the trine between Juno and the Sun in Virgo. Also, Juno will cease it’s trine with Neptune Retrograde and begin to trine Chiron Retrograde instead.
The general ‘flavour’ of configuration will lessen its emphasis on the Mind and deep Intuition/Higher Communion – and will increase its emphasis on creative embodiment of lessons learnt, in order to heal from and teach others through the experience of the Soul’s Deepest Wounding in Pisces.
Time to heal, time to create, time to teach, time to embody the Divine Feminine Many of us will awaken at this time, called to Her Service, particularly through Her Crone Aspect. (e.g. Dhumavati-Ma, Goddess Hekate, The Cailleach, et cetera). Some might also feel drawn to aspects of the Divine Masculine-in-the-Underworld, playing through the themes of death and resurrection (the energy of Osiris, Anubis, Christ, and so on).
I consider this momentary breaking of configuration as a blessing from the Universe, owing to the intensity of the coming Virgo New Moon and the Mars/Saturn conjunction. For coping strategies – you might like to read this rough guide – http://wp.me/p4OUNS-59
