Planets are lining up in the sky in a specific way.  This translates into specific things happening here for us.  It's an electromagnetic-harmonic property of life - one of the myriad fields of science.  But it is also a spiritual property of life - one of the myriad fields of the arts of free will.

So today we will be sure to consider the themes that are developing within our lives and throughout the world from the proper perspective.  We attend to the perspective of wisdom.  We acknowledge the presence of two levels of things happening at once.

The most important thing to remember is that all of that is developing now is designed to put things into better alignment with truth, freedom, love, harmony, respect, kindness, sanity, and life. 

This is due to Uranus' influence.  You could say that this is the Lord of Lightning's Year.  Uranus is the Planet of change, shock and surprise, revolution, and re-alignment.  Since April 18 (the beginning of the solar-lunar astrological year), many changes, shocks, surprises, revolts, and re-alignments have happened to us as a collective, but to many individuals if their natal astrological charts are being personally activated.

Now, in late October, we come almost 180 degrees from the time those changes, shocks, surprises, revolts, and re-alignments began back in April.  We come to the farthest point away, and thus, the best view.  The fullest view.  The greatest panorama.  In astrology, this is called an "opposition" but it is best understood as a full view of light like a Full Moon. 

That was more of an introduction than I intended to write this morning, but I think it helps put the energy that is in play today (and continues rather strongly until the Full Moon, actually), in a bigger picture.  The juxtaposition of the planets and the energies (harmonics) they are disseminating is certainly tidal.

Here are the Sabian symbols in effect with analysis from the perspective of two levels of things happening at once. 

ASK FOR A LIFT:  The Sun is disseminating the energy of "a man in deep gloom; unnoticed, angels comes to his aid" and the Earth is disseminating the energy of "a large disappointed audience."  These energies are generally two of the more painful of the 360 degrees of the zodiac, so when a planet reaches these degrees, deep shadows, melancholy, and darkness can emerge within us.  Our thoughts can become very negative. 

This gloomy or defeated energetic is highly amplified by Venus, Jupiter, and Mars making opposition to Chiron, the planet that inflicts (and also heals) wounds.  There's much ado about Venus, Jupiter and Mars aligning, but what is not understood is "where and what" they are lining up.  And what is mostly overlooked is the fact that Chiron sits at the opposite place in the sky -- 180 degrees away, giving the full view, the most light, the greatest potential for healing. 

We are receiving a great teaching from the heavens this week.

In this symbol, we do not know why the man is in deep gloom.  We know that aid, an airlift, comes to his rescue - if he sees it.  If he wants it.  It may be harder to see that things are getting better or that we have been saved by our rejections under Chiron's influence.

If the very challenging themes of Chiron (feelings of failure/disappointment, self-sabotage, self-loathing, deep pain/grief) are activating for you, raise your hand and request an airlift - an uplift - from Spirit.  Then prepare to be aided - flown out of that place.

THE VEIL:  Once again, the Sabian symbol of "a bride with her veil snatched away" is being activated, this time by Venus.  The bare truth of things, especially relationships is being revealed.  If this becomes too stark or oppressive, again, raise your hand and ask for an airlift out of it.

THE ERUPTION: Mars, Planet of Fire, Planet of Action, Planet of Impulsivity, and Planet of Action, moves to the degree of "a volcanic eruption."  Catharsis is the highest octave of this energy; out of control and explosive is the lowest octave.  Best to maneuver your airlift around that.  Be aware that people will be responding to this dynamic.

Let's rise above it, secure in the knowledge that a higher dimension of change is operating to rectify things.
