A Whole Lotta Somethin'

There's a whole bunch of something in the air.

Two things are happening at the moment. The first is that we're getting another visit from the Uranus-Pluto square—what I've been calling the 2012 aspect. That's the longstanding pattern of Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn that lasts from 2012 through 2015.

The way that kind of aspect works is that it's kind of waiting there, setting the tone of our era in history, and then when other planets come along and make aspects to it, it jumps out from the background. For example, Mercury and Venus have just passed through the aspect from the sign Cancer, and we're seeing many effects—the protests in Turkey, and the fuss over the National Security Agency bringing the "war on terra" to Facebook and Google.

The other distinctive current event is that Jupiter is in Gemini, making its one and only opposition to the Galactic Core in Sagittarius. Our spiral of stars called the Milky Way has a supermassive black hole at the center, and that's the core of our galaxy.

Jupiter is now opposite that point. The Galactic Core is to one side of the Earth and Jupiter is to the other side. This sensation can feel like being overwhelmed by something invisible.

Jupiter moves slower than the inner planets, so this opposition will last for a while—in truth, it will be noticeable until Jupiter changes signs from Gemini to Cancer later in the month, then the sign change is likely to trump the feeling of the opposition to the core.

Speaking of—when Jupiter changes signs on June 26, it will go onto the cardinal cross and join the Uranus-Pluto square, forming what is called a T-square. It will soon move into the position now occupied by Venus, with a much larger effect.

For many months, Jupiter will be opposite Pluto and square Uranus, which will be pretty exciting. Jupiter will also join Saturn, Chiron and Neptune in the water signs. This is a whole new kind of energy environment, unlike anything we've ever felt in our lifetimes, with an exception being some moments in the mid-1960s (of which this astrology is reminiscent).

Now all we have to do is put being such wonderful, gifted, and enlightened people to work for some useful collective purpose.

I've covered the astrology of the NSA leak in the current edition of Planet Waves FM.
