Weekend Astrology 


We are approaching the summer solstice, one of the most concentrated astrological moments of the year. This plays into an existing setup of planets gathering in the places where the changes of seasons are focused -- called the Aries Point: the imaginary cross in the sky that goes from Aries to Libra and Cancer to Capricorn. If you're wondering why the world seems to be spinning off its axis, and why your life feels like a trip through your own personal Twilight Zone Theme Park, check the astrology: it's the Aries Point -- the one that reminds us that the personal is political and that every individual is connected to a larger public life.

It's not small planets collecting along this axis; rather, it's the ones that change the world no matter what they do. Pluto is still in early Capricorn. Saturn is about to re-enter Libra to stay for two years. Jupiter and Uranus are in Aries. And now the Sun is about to complete the cross by ingressing the sign Cancer on Monday, June 21, followed by a spectacular lunar eclipse exactly conjunct Pluto on Saturday, June 26.

This will be an interesting week -- not that we're short of interesting at the moment. But it's worth checking in with the big picture, and the Sun jumping into what is called by astrology freaks the "Cardinal T-Square" is giving us a moment that feels like this thing we think of as 2012. We see the problems. Many of us see the opportunities at hand. The missing ingredient is vision. The planets are offering us plenty of that, in the form of the brilliant Jupiter Uranus conjunction in Aries, but the question is, how do we collect that energy? Clue: You want to.

  • Calling In the Capricorn Full Moon
  • Calling In the Capricorn Full Moon

    The astrological setup is that the Sun in Cancer will oppose the Moon in Capricorn, exact just before 12:07am EDT on July 9. The Moon will be precisely one degree away from a conjunction to Pluto. The Sun and Moon are both making their way to square Uranus and Eris in Aries, though the Moon will make its square later the same day.
