SUN CONJUNCTS SATURN (18 Sagittarius) – IN CRADLE WITH MARS, PALLAS ATHENA, URANUS, CERES, MOON AND JUPITER
Things can get quite intense and emotionally volatile. Look to see what erupts (and sometimes that´s not a bad thing). Commit to the path that emerges and the Self that wants to be expressed. Remember to look at the Self as your first source of Nurture, rather than another person. Whilst reaching to Spirit is powerful and wonderful, remember that you´re still the person / consciousness making that interface possible. If you find a teacher, path or paradigm you absolutely need to connect with – do it. Or a journey, exploration, adventure – and so on.
If you have placements near 18-24 Leo, Kapow! That´s a Grand Fire Trine. Watch to see where inspiration and passion take you. And act on it, if possible. The only thing I would ask you to bear in mind is the principle of non-harm, be it to others, or yourself.
( On a related note … I ended up buying a gorgeous piece of raw Sunstone yesterday )
As part of a larger alignment –
Jupiter (18 Libra) sextiles Sun/Saturn (18 Sagittarius) which sextiles Mars & Pallas Athena (23-25 Aquarius) which sextiles Uranus/Ceres/Moon (20-24 Aries) which creates – a Cradle Formation. This is one half of a Grand Sextile or Star of David. Those with placements near 18-25 Leo and 18-25 Gemini will experience this as a Grand Sextile in full formation. Manifestation Central (so choose wisely!).
Generally speaking, the Cradle formation with Jupiter and co. gives us the opportunity to throw in these different energies into a pot and stir them about. It´s a space of fertility, sanctuary, development – but equally of stagnation if not acted on. Which is why you look at other aspects to see where and how this energy can be channelled.
Sun/Saturn happen to square Chiron (20 Pisces). This is an excellent point of focus, or outlet for the Cradle alignment. Use whatever you´re being triggered or inspired by to delve deeper into your spirituality and the relationship you have with healing, woundedness, the wounded teacher archetype, conceptions of sacredness-suffering-martyrdom (and how they may or may not intersect) and so on. It´s a fine day to seek healing from a teacher or facilitator you trust and/or to alter your paradigm of healing entirely (if needed).
If feeling particularly vulnerable, try working with the energy of Rhodocrosite and Rose Quartz in combination. It will help you bring repressed or suppressed emotions to the surface, but in way that does not necessarily overwhelm.
Blessings and Love,
