An Astrology Moment is a transient astrological pattern usually lasting between a few days and a week. The current planetary movements connecting in ways which represent symbolic themes and flavours to our ever changing days.
1st July 2009
In the next few days there will be four planets situated at 26 degrees in the astrological landscape. This particular degree (26) has been quite predominant recently although I am not sure whether there is specific meanings to the general scheme of things. Perhaps those with natal planets at 26 degrees will argue the point.
Tomorrow Mercury will be at 26 degrees Gemini, Venus at 26 degrees Taurus, Jupiter at 26 degrees Aquarius and Uranus at 26 degrees of Pisces.
This equates to the following complex array of aspects.
Mercury trine Jupiter
Mercury square Uranus
Venus sextile Uranus
Venus square Jupiter
The aspect patterns look something like a squeeze box.
All these planets connect to each other and are interacting together to “say” something in the transiting astrological landscape. Perhaps the faster moving personal planets of Mercury and Venus can be described as a dis-chord here. When we think about music and harmonies, the dis chord is when a particular note or combination of notes strikes a discordant pause in the arrangement.
The discordant pause in a musical sense is designed to highlight or emphasise particular points in the music. Much the same as a painting displaying a colour that seems out of place to the other hues. The colour however seems to fit creatively into the scheme of things. Something that stands out tomorrow will get us thinking.
So what does all this mean in literal and subjective astrological interpretation?
Mercury and Jupiter are working well for ideas and plans tomorrow. Events such as workshops and meetings are planned well, however different social – cultural and philosophical backgrounds will present an interesting moment or pause in the proceedings. Perhaps there is a discordant moment where one senses a “difference” – like the silent moment in discussion becoming poignant in some way. Perhaps a new haircut – or tattoo or fashion combination strikes an individual and different theme tomorrow.
Accepting diversity and incorporating new ideas tomorrow doesn’t necessarily point to conflict. There may be an unusual approach to ones existing ideas and concepts. Whether one takes these views on board is not the point of this complex aspect pattern; however the pause and emphasis of the “dis-chord” shows that diversity is present and a statement is being made.
The philosophical challenge is to make sense of this moment and to either acknowledge or incorporate different views amongst your “team” or family.
