How are the Planetary Transits of 2013 relevant to you?

  1. 1. What’s going on in the Sky? How is it relevant to your life? With Psychological Astrologer Margaret Gray MSW D. Psych. Astrology We can’t stop the waves but we can learn to surf Jon Kabat-Zinn In the midst of this time of major evolutionary transformation, we are learning to navigate new currents, as well as releasing old familiar ways of feeling secure. Join me in this presentation to briefly explore the key planetary energies that are assisting us in this process and ways we can co-create with them.
  2. 2. 2013 – 2014: From Restriction to Expansion From Density to Lightness From Outer Success to Inner Joy
  3. 3. The Summer of 2013 Water Water Everywhere Key theme: Emotional Awakenings and Transformative Expansion
  4. 4. A reminder of what astrology is based on – the study of the stars On a clear night this is what we might see in the sky
  5. 5. In ancient times people grouped the stars into shapes which they named the 12 Signs of the Zodiac. Many of these Signs resemble animals. This is the Zodiac Sign of Cancer
  6. 6. These are the Planets which we can view from Earth - so far !
  7. 7. Your Birth Chart is a symbolic map of where the Planets were located within the 12 signs of the zodiac at the exact moment of your birth. Hence if the Sun was in the sign of Leo at the time of your birth, you would be described as having ‘Sun in Leo’ . Similarly for the other planets.
  8. 8. Core themes for 2013: Expansion, Release, Transformation, Integration and Action The planetary energies of 2013 can be divided into three main phases: January to May invited us to expand forwards with direct action. May to August brings an increase in planetary intensity. This is an ideal time to release and transform on all levels. September to December is an opportune time to re-structure.
  9. 9. The key underlying theme in the sky from 2012 – 2015 is the on-going square between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. The core invitation of this powerful configuration is to transform and release inauthentic structures and embrace a new way of being that is more fully aligned with our soul self. Saturn also remains in Scorpio until 2015, thereby reinforcing these key themes.
  10. 10. The Dates and Degrees of the exact Uranus/Pluto square 2012 – 2015 – these are particularly good times to effect change to any outdated structures in our lives at a personal and collective level including finances, home, relationships etc. We are also likely to feel more rebellious and impatient at these times!

  12. 12. In addition, over the Summer months of 2013, we are experiencing several Grand Trines in Water which introduce a powerful emotional, imaginative and spiritual dimension to the current changes on a collective and individual basis
  13. 13. A Grand Trine formation occurs when 3 or more planets are 120’ from each other in the sky , thereby forming an equilateral triangle. This configuration allows energy to flow freely and easily between the planets involved. In sacred geometry the number three has many spiritual/esoteric associations.
  14. 14. Some Meanings for the Grand Trines in Water Signs: Expanding our depth world of feelings and our unconscious realms Characteristics of the Element of Water/Emotions: Unstoppable Can flood or freeze when we are overwhelmed Holds treasures in its depths
  15. 15. Searching for where we feel most at home within ourselves and in the world Bringing to the surface, healing and releasing unresolved emotions to do with the past Expanding through joyful creative self expression Connecting with ourselves and others on a depthful authentic emotional level Mothering/nurturing ourselves and noticing where and how we seek it from others and things, particularly money and food Experiencing and expressing lunar unconditional love towards self and others Noticing and releasing ‘Mother Complexes’ Summary of the Core Themes for the Grand Trines in Water this Summer:
  16. 16. Some Key Dates this Summer : July 26th - 31st : Mars opposite Pluto & Square Uranus – it is important to keep calm during this time.

September9th /10th – Mars quincunx Pluto – this willentail a revisiting of some of the changes that willhave taken place internally and externally at the end of July (Note- these dates may vary slightly depending on time zones.Also - the energies will be active at least
  17. 17. We can’t stop the waves but we can learn to surf Jon Kabat-Zinn With a majority of planets in Water Signs and few in Earth throughout the summer, it is important to remember to ground ourselves in our body and on this planet so that we don’t feel swamped by the expansive waves of feelings within ourselves and in the collective.

  18. 18. You are likely to resonate particularly strongly with these themes if you have Planets or angles between 0’ – 7’ Cancer, Capricorn, Libra, Aries, Scorpio or Taurus and/or if you are in the midst of your Saturn Return (aged 29, 60 or 89) or Midlife Transits (age 37 – 43) and/or if you have planets between 8’ and 13’ Aries, Libra, Capricorn or Sagittarius
  19. 19. So what can you do?
  20. 20. Don’t Nail the Floorboards Down!! Go Willingly into your depths and clear out whatever you no longer need Step into Your Authentic Power Take the opportunity to create with the planetary energies Have fun in the process – this new world we are creating is based on JOY
  21. 21. Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that but simply growth, we are happy when we are growing William Butler Yeats
