There is no Gaia in astrology because she is the Earth itself. Or, herself. Many of you will have grokked the multiple mentions of the new Earth emphasis or Earth era in the Horoscopes of late. It’s not just the current hefty line up in Capricorn nor even Saturn into Capricorn.
It’s that plus Regulus into Virgo (Age of Kings gives way to Age of Queens) and Uranus impending in Taurus. Earth-Earth-Earth. It’s foundation energy. One way or another, we are all re-grounding ourselves now. This has ecological and economic manifestations that we shall, of course, be exploring. But today i am thinking about Gaia.
Gaia is the Ancient Greek Earth Goddess – Terra in Ancient Rome – and she was the most ancient one. The creator of everything. She conjured up her husband – Uranus. She birthed all the gods, fought massive battles, ran the fuqing planet and most of the time was a single mother.
Some say Gaia is the most primal deity of all – that there was nothing else pre-her. Gaia was the Goddess consulted by the Priestesses at the Oracle of Delphi. She came before even the oldest versions of the Zodiac Signs.
Gaia Existed Before Time
Gaia existed before time. She correlates with the Indo-European-Buddhist Tara, the Ancient Babylonian Ishtar, the Phoenician Cybele & Astarte, the Ancient Egyptian Astarte. Her full Ancient Roman title; “Terra Firma – Great Mother, Firmly Founded, Oldest of Divinities.”
Where is Gaia in your chart? Gaia is Earth. The Earth point (and i don’t spend a whole lot of time thinking on this but it’s starting to interest me again) is always exactly opposite your Sun.
We are living through a cultural shift that feels tectonic. Pluto square Eris/Persephone is a factor in this; the rage, the unmasking of abusers, how this parade of sleaze has thawed trauma that we long-ago snap-froze in some secret recess of our psyche. But could it also be a Gaia Vibe?
Gaia IS Earth
And while we are at it, Oprah 2020 (Pluto on her North Node in Capricorn, that should do it) has my vote and i don’t even live in America.
Maybe we just create liberty & egalitarian rights for all beings one world government? Scrap all the recent religions and just go back to basics; Gaia. The first one.
