The Psychological Astrology of the Planetary Transits of 2014

  1. 1. Key Highlights of the Planetary Transits of 2014 from a Psychological Astrology Perspective Margaret Gray MSW D. Psych. Astrology © Copyright 2013 ~ Margaret Gray All Rights Reserved
  2. 2. 2014 Awakening Balancing Innovation Action
  3. 3. Core Astrological Configuration for 2014 = The Grand Cross Key planets = Uranus, Pluto, Mars and Jupiter A Grand Cross = a planetary configuration where 4 or more planets form the shape of a cross. Because of the nature of this shape and because the planets involved in this case are at what is considered the ‘critical degree’ of 13’ for cardinal signs in traditional astrology, there is a lot of pressure from these energies to take action. During peak times we are likely to experience a degree of internal and external agitation on an individual and collective level.
  4. 4. The Ongoing Background themes in 2014 Empowered self authority Pioneering innovations in Mind Body & Spirit Releasing old stagnant energy on an individual and collective level particularly fear Pioneeri ng innovati ons in the Mind/Bo dy Arena New ways of conscoiusly using our mind Unconditional love for self and others Embracing that we are the creators Authentic personal & collective structures Uranus square Pluto (Exact in April 21st + Oct 14th 2014) + Neptune + Chiron in Full details at
  5. 5. The Ending of 2013: Dec 21st: Venus Ret. until Jan 31st 2014 Dec 25th : Mars opposite Uranus Dec 27th : Mars quincunx Chiron Dec 30th : Mars square Pluto Core Theme: The issue of Justice and fairness comes to the forefront on an individual and collective level. This is a very active time! Best to avoid potential conflicts and keep centered. The Start of 2014: Jan 1st 2014: The New Moon at 10 Capricorn ‘57 joins the Grand Cross together with Mercury, illuminating our need to focus on communication that is based on authenticity and meaning.
  6. 6. Winter 2014 Mars which moved into Libra for 8 months on Dec 7th 2013, continues to play an active role in the Cardinal Grand Cross formation in the sky with Jupiter in Cancer. This will continue until June 2014. Mars in Libra invites us to use our mental capacities to observe and take calculated action rather than react, so that we can balance carefully where our actions might be most effective. One of the arenas where imbalance needs to be addressed and reassessed in 2014 is relationships, so that we can change areas of inequality leading to increased mutuality.
  7. 7. Summer 2014: Jupiter will move from watery Cancer to fiery Leo from July 2014 to August 2015. The energies for this naturally expansive planet will shift from highlighting patterns of selfnurturing, connected to dynamics within our family/community of origin, to an invitation to develop an expansive joyful authentic soulful self, emanating from an open heart.
  8. 8. The last few months of 2014: In the last three months of the year, Jupiter will square Saturn in Scorpio. These two planets are regular dance companions and the current square will invite us to find joy and meaning in our existence through unearthing and integrating our shadow, as well as our light. In reality they are one and the same as there is only light, with darkness being an illusion based in fear
  9. 9. Additional Important Dates for 2014 February 6th – 28th : Mercury Retrograde in Pisces and Aquarius. April 15th: Total Lunar Eclipse at 25’ Libra 16 April 21st : 5th exact Uranus square Pluto at 13’ Aries/Capricorn 34 April 29th: Annular Solar Eclipse at 8’ Taurus 52 June 7th – July 1st: Mercury Retrograde in Cancer and Gemini Oct 4th – 25th: Mercury Ret.

  10. 10. Some Questions to consider this coming year: • Where do I need to take action in my life? – How might I take considered action rather than react? • What areas of my life are out of balance? How might I bring them into balance? • Are my relationships mutual? If not – what do I need to do to make them more reciprocal?
  11. 11. Useful Tools for 2014: • Meditation • Exercise • Fun and play • Connection with like minded individuals and groups
  12. 12. You are more likely to resonate with the Transits in 2014 if you have planets or angles between 7’ and 17’ Aries, Libra, Capricorn, Cancer, Scorpio or Taurus. These transits will also reverberate with you if you are going through a time of Life Transition such as going through the Midlife transits including: Pluto square Pluto (age 36/37), Neptune square Neptune (age 41/42) and Uranus opposite Uranus (age 41/42) A free copy of your birth chart is available at
  13. 13. For those moments when the energies feel a little intense, you may find this quote from Dr. Brian Weiss helpful: ‘Our bodies and our minds are the masks our real self – the soul – wears in the physical world. It is important to remember that we are the souls, not the masks’
