As I was jus’ saying, since squares and oppositions may be experienced as CTA’s (calls to action), the activity may be with another person or within one’s self, as integrating the ogres, and learning how to love “them.” Asteroids Tris and Isolda, Cyllarus, implying Hylonome (who like Juliet chose death to be with her Beloved),…and Guinevere who has just passed Pluto, and both melt together briefly as the Moon crossed them both in the first chart diagram in the first Grand Cross post for Apr 20.
Remember Guinevere? King Arthur’s Queen who fell in love with Lancelot while still loving Arthur. Love theme abounding. She’s the crown glyph conjunct Pluto exactly at 13-degrees Capricorn.
We’re looking at meanings of infidelity and wrong values too—part of the growing pains towards learning how to love, nor can we forget lust. However, after helping to dismantle Camelot, she wished she had behaved differently and lived the rest of her life as a nun, so we’re looking at potentially greater Spiritual Love. I mentioned this possibility also in Jupiter in Cancer where it is exalted.
On the other side of Pluto is the Asteroid, Okyrhoe, daughter of Chiron—how fine is that!? She was a prophetess who was turned into a mare because she told what would happen to her father and about his death. (Much like another Asteroid, prophetic Kassandra, who was never believed).
Blending Pluto with Okyrhoe and Queen Guin, some prophetic Astrologer might imagine something adverse England’s beloved monarch, or that Astrologers’ trumpets of the Grand Cross will reach ears insistently. I prefer not to go that route. I don’t keep up with all the news, and I like to use Astrology for helping a person uplevel feelings, purpose, values, and Spiritual Path, whatever that might be.
Pluto, Okyrhoe, and Guinevere are about transforming and being transformed — Persephone, prophecy, a mare, a nun — all about humans seeking some level of transcendence. Pluto led to Persephone becoming a Queen, not just of the Underworld, but of her own Unconscious. One can see she moved up on the inner Realms.
Re the cosmic nature of this, please note Sarah Varcas’ article on Cosmic Satori, http://astro-awakenings.co.uk/23rd-24th-april-2014-cardinal-grand-cross,
The opposition from Jupiter adds expansiveness to this vista — perhaps suddenly with the square to Uranus, and the conjunction to Cyllarus, who was changed to his spirit self in a twinkling, and no one knew how. These planets and aspects emphasize the strong possibilities of accelerated epiphanies — Meditational break-throughs, or feelings of intimacy with the global human spirit. The window is available. The dynamic beckons.
At the time of this publishing, the rare squares of the larger Planets have hit their degree tightness, and I’m receiving reports of
~ strongly increased connubial conflicts,
~ angst around desire to move to support father and daughter, but increased compelling to stay at current job with even more money,
~ breakdown of plans to have a book published for daughter’s birthday, but publisher giving no heads-up that it ain’t gonna happen.
~ steady ideas support flowing through me since Moon conjuncted Okyrhoe and Pluto, on through now, resulting in these three posts.
