Pluto’s Finger On the Nuclear Trigger This Week

Over this coming weekend there will be a truly amazing set of astrological events occurring.  This is the kind of celestial phenomena that usually coincides with human intensity that both coincides and brings on crisis. fingerbutton.jpg

On Friday, April 3, 2009, Mars makes a quintile to Pluto; on the following day Pluto then turns retrograde while  Mars simultaneously opposes Saturn; and then on Sunday, the 5th (my birthday) the Sun quincunxes Saturn.  If we take a look at these planets together they form a tight fifth harmonic three-way aspect with each other. 

Pluto in action causes our feeling, actions, and thoughts to go nuclear; that is, energies take on such depth and power as to cause a literal transformation of the energy.  Transformation here is not just a surface rearrangement, but a fundamental, irrevocable altering of the subject at hand.  Metaphysically transformation is referred to by the idea of death; the subject dies in one form and is reborn in another.  Death is not an end, but only a change….

Over this coming weekend there will be a truly amazing set of astrological events occurring.  This is the kind of celestial phenomena that usually coincides with human intensity that both coincides and brings on crisis.  The word “crisis” of course is one of those charged human terms that can evoke a lot of anxiety in people; but it is really a purposeful phase of evolutionary development in our lives.  fingerbutton.jpg

On Friday, April 3, 2009, Mars makes a quintile to Pluto; on the following day Pluto then turns retrograde while  Mars simultaneously opposes Saturn; and then on Sunday, the 5th (my birthday) the Sun quincunxes Saturn. If we take a look at these planets together they form a tight fifth harmonic three-way aspect with each other. 

Pluto in action causes our feeling, actions, and thoughts to go nuclear; that is, energies take on such depth and power as to cause a literal transformation of the energy.  Transformation here is not just a surface rearrangement, but a fundamental, irrevocable altering of the subject at hand.  Metaphysically transformation is referred to by the idea of death; the subject dies in one form and is reborn in another.  Death is not an end, but only a change. 

For those who hold on to the past and its forms, this is a hard process indeed; to them the universe becomes a cruel, cold force that has to be evaded or forestalled as long as possible through all sorts of rituals, traditions, and self-deceptions.  People cry at funerals, grieve their losses, and struggle to hold on to what they have managed to appropriate in life. 

040409masapl.jpgOthers choose to see the same situations above as the liberating power of the universe in action: in physical death people are freed from limiting, increasingly-degrading or outright bad life-circumstances, old and out-worn life structures are allowed to collapse such as jobs, relationships, or circumstances, new possibilities and opportunities are opened up.  The human soul (which is really Divine by nature) has wings; it was not meant to be shackled to the ground or imprisoned like a bird in a cage. 

All structures eventually collapse, but the structure-less part of human nature rises just as the matter-illusion-conglomerates go down (disintegrate).  Over-identification with the structures of life causes suffering ultimately; a felicitous detachment however to the impermanent aspects of life creates the state of consciousness that is set to launch permanently into the cosmic levels of existence. 

Contrasting to that extremely heady last point I’ve made, the opposition of Mars and Saturn on the same day as Pluto turning retrograde has a strong possibility of bringing into high relief various shades of human powerlessness, which causes people to compensate for by acting aggressive and intimidating toward others.  When something happens that we don’t like and we feel powerless against it, the ego feels the need to act tough and to make a lot of loud overtures.  You might hear a lot of that this weekend, including from yourself.

Real power, however, comes from a calm center of infinite peace; as yogic masters demonstrate by walking on the water, raising the dead, and the multiplication of substance.  Saturn acting on Mars says, “Hold on, take an assessment of the situation, and work out your plan of action”; while Mars says, “No, I act now quickly and decisively”.  Unfortunately for Mars, Saturn is bigger; his orbit is much longer and he act more deeply on the human psyche.  So Saturn will prevail in holding things back, forcing Mars to temper and discipline his energies to a higher, more refined purpose; burning out any lesser egoic motives that Mars might still harbor. 

Pluto then entering the equation ups the ante tenfold or more, and has his finger on the nuclear button.  I wouldn’t say that bombs will be going off all over the planet, but they do seem to go off in some countries a lot such as Pakistan.  I’m sure though, you the reader can understand the idea of a bomb going off inside your skull and the effect of that. 

This is a pretty big event in the skies above us, certainly subtle in many ways.  Down below, it shouldn’t be much different.  The graph posted at bottom gives additional visual validation.

Mon, March 30
Who and what you are may suffer some confusion and disclarity, which may have a detrimental effect on health levels.  Details may get distorted and cause problems.  Errors or deceptions may arise in general.  Beware of chemicals, toxins and sensitivities thereof.  (Sun in Pisces conjunct Mercury, semisquare Neptune in Aquarius)

Tues, March 31

No peaking influences

Wed, April 1

Social, cultural and spiritual situations should be enhanced, as well as the tendency to spend valuable resources on gains of a questionable nature.  (Venus in Pisces retrograde semisquare Jupiter in Capricorn)

Thurs, April 2
There is a danger toward over-pessimism creating a sense of futility or defeatism in affairs; there should be a lot of serious business to analyze or discuss, or there could be mental blockages or inhibitions afflicting true perspective on things.  (Mercury in Pisces quincunx Saturn in Leo retrograde)

Friday, April 3
Relationship matters and the emotional response elicited by various means may be surprisingly strong, but not necessarily valid.  A very intense weekend starts, you may find tremendous energy to effect ambitious actions; be careful about physical breakdown, injuries, or the burning the candle at both ends.  (Venus in Pisces square Pluto in Sagittarius, Mars in Aquarius quintile Pluto)

Sat, April 4
The fuse it lit, a feeling of “something big is about to happen” may be strongly present.  The bomb however goes off when it goes off.  This is a very strong developmental and spiritually purgative day, as it this whole weekend.  (Pluto stationary retrograde, Mars opposite Saturn)

Sun, April 5
An obsessive negativity may color thinking and expressing yourself right now.  Anxieties and various disempowerments may look strongly in your psyche elicited by frustrating turns of events.  (Mercury tridecile Pluto, biquintile Saturn, Sun quincunx Saturn)

Mon, April 6
