What is this? It’s Grand Cross Astrology. Or, as I call it, the Hyper Flux. Multiple astrological energies are squaring one another in Mutable signs. So Happy Hyper-Flux.
That is, the ‘grand Mutable cross’ (or square) between the Sun, Moon, and planets in the Mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces.
I personally am drawing inspiration from Mercury (finally in simpatico Gemini after weeks of turgid but beneficial processing in Taurus) conjunct asteroid Sphinx. Best attitude: Ancient & Inscrutable. There is more to the Sphinx than just the riddles of legend.
But the main player in all this is Saturn square Neptune.
The opening stanza was last November. That busted delusions and lies. This is – depending on how receptive you were in late 2015 – the reward or consequence of what went down then. It is also an opportunity to lay the foundation for the next bout of this in September. But really, Grand Cross Astrology is distinctive because the atmosphere is so crazy.
Good Question: How can this be about the building of any foundation when it feels SO skittish and nuts. This is forever being explored in various guises in the Horoscopes.
You have to somehow be mega-real without flimsy faux perceptions while nurturing your magic. Being agile and grounded is challenging.
This also comes halfway through Pluto in Capricorn – an interesting point that I thought about when reading this in Salon today.
Do you think we are in a revolutionary era now? Or is it more something on the horizon?
It’s with us already, but with this caveat: it is what Gramsci calls interregnum, this period where the ideas that buttress the old ruling elite no longer hold sway, but we haven’t articulated something to take its place.
That’s what that essay I quote by Alexander Berkman, “The Invisible Revolution,” talks about. He likens it to a pot that’s beginning to boil. So it’s already taking place, although it’s subterranean. And the facade of power — both the physical facade of power and the ideological facade of power — appears to remain intact. But it has less and less credibility.
Uranus in Taurus from 2018/2019, supports Pluto in Capricorn as they are both Earth signs. So the “something” to take the place of the decaying old system will innovate with that, I believe.
And so the Saturn-Neptune square – the Existential, the Hyper-Flux, all THIS – is about us streamlining for a new era and shedding old era shit at warp speed. The old normal has no currency in the new normal.
So, how are you all going in all this and thoughts in general?
