Strong shifts are in effect this weekend, as the Sun shifts out of the energy of Pisces (the last sign of the zodiac) and is "reborn" in Aries (the first sign in the zodiac). The two energetics are quite different. Pisces is sensitive, artsy, dreamy, and floats in the waters of Spirit. Aries is action-oriented, new, innovative, impulsive, and burns brightly with the fires of Spirit.
On Saturday, the Sun discharges the last degree of Pisces and the archetypal energetic of "a majestic rock formation resembling a face is idealized by a boy as his ideal of greatness, and as he grows us, begins to look like it." If you have been reading the Oracle Report for a year, you will remember that this was the degree of the New Moon in Pisces last year -- the last month of the "old world," which was the second half of March and the first half of April 2015. How things have changed.
Saturday's energy encourages us to aim for the ideal -- that which would be most desirable in given situations. We are a traumatized species, and as trauma "victims," we have eliminated notions that good things could happen. We dare not engage the process. Who wants to get their hopes up when they were dashed a long time ago?
Hopes, wishes, and dreams are an innate part of being human that has been "written out" of our nature via archontic interference. Today, as the Sun completes its revolution around the zodiac (from our geocentric or Earth-based viewpoint), it leaves us asking us about ideals of greatness. What does that conjure for you?
The best guidance for Saturday is to let our imaginations run wild. From there, things begin to come into form - into "concrete manifestation," as Sabian symbol Queen Lynda Hill writes of the symbol for 30 Pisces. The Sun will leave Pisces and enter Aries Saturday at 11:31 pm ET/Sunday at 3:31 am UT.
Emotions are heightened all weekend, with Mercury discharging three separate energetics around the emotional themes of the Moon. Beginnings, going different or separate ways, coming to fruition, and maintaining equilibrium are the top themes.
There is a Grand Trine in effect Saturday between 7:28 am ET/11:28 am UT and 5:08 pm ET/9:08 pm UT involving the Moon, Saturn, and Uranus. This combination begins and ends with the Sun, as it starts with the Moon at "brilliant sunshine just after a storm," and ends with "American Indians perform a ritual to the Sun." There may be some surprising, hard, or necessary lessons, but it all serves to enlighten us and set things up in a better way for us. Anything that feels like rejection can be placed on hold before the final outcome is in. This energy wants to free us from what has held us back, and will do what it needs to in order to make it happen.
The shift is quite palpable Sunday, with the Sun entering Aries, and now moving through the opposite sign as the Black Moon in Libra. This is going to intensify the effects of the Black Moon in Libra. I believe I could make a good case for the Black Moon (or what remains of it) being the binary or counterpart to our Sun. In this way, the Black Moon could be called the Black Sun. But that is a discussion for another day.
What we remember Sunday is that shadow sides begin to come closer to the surface for the next month. People will project their cognitive and emotional dissonance onto others. People's fears are brought to face. Defensiveness, especially if the status quo is disrupted, can be expected. Things will begin to move very fast, as Aries likes to rush forward.
Recall that Jupiter is discharging "a volcanic eruption" for several more days, and the potential is high for anger to rise with the Sun moving into Aries. Depression is anger turned inward, and inward is the Black Moon's domain. The energy works both ways.
While the Sun and the Black Moon/Sun dance in opposite signs over the next 30 days, the sky is the limit for what could develop. Pandora's box comes to mind (and has been the image in my mind regarding the situation "on the ground" during next solar-lunar year's "magic carpet ride" or theme for the astrological new year that begins April 7, but China already used that phrase (incorrectly) last week, referencing the race for a Republican candidate for the presidency here in the US). Still, the sentiment remains.
It is definitely getting interesting. More so, even, when you consider that Sunday the Sun will be discharging the first degree of Aries and the Sabian symbol of "a woman has risen out of the ocean; a seal is embracing her." This speaks of emergence into, again, concrete manifestation. The Universe seeks to bring us back to life.
This weekend, we want to think about, find, or create what is majestic, what is ideal, and what is rising inside of us. How are things setting up?
Happy weekend, everyone!
