Jan?s Advice for Navigating the Year Ahead?
There is no denying the amount of turmoil that has been occurring in our personal lives, our communities, and our world over the past few years.? It is a time of rapid, radical changes that test the very foundations of what we rely on for order in our world.
In 2015 we are just beyond two-thirds through this difficult cycle and it behooves us to take another ?big picture? look at what?s going on.? Astrologically, this period is marked by Uranus in Aries squaring Pluto in Capricorn.? The cycle began in full force in May 2010 and lasts until May 2018.? Because both planets travel periodically in direct and retrograde motion (forward and backward), sometimes the square between these two heavenly bodies becomes closer, more exact, and more tumultuous.? Thus, during this eight year period, there will be times of greater and lesser intensity.? The year ahead, 2015, is one of the years of greater intensity.
To better understand the forces involved, Pluto is in the sign of Capricorn (January 2008-November 2024).? Pluto moves slowly, and whatever sign Pluto travels through goes through total upheaval and transformation.? It is the process of the caterpillar entering into a cocoon and emerging as a butterfly.? Pluto is purging everything that is corrupt and stagnant in Capricorn so that there is opening for a new and more enlightened version of the Capricorn energy to emerge and begin operating.
Capricorn rules systems of order: government, corporations, authority figures, the established social order of things.? As Pluto travels through Capricorn, political, religious, and financial systems that have become outdated ? that no longer serve the people who they rule and for whom they were established ? begin to expose their frailties, crumble and fall.? The good news is that as the old falls, a newer, fresher system for organizing society emerges.? As an example, the United States of America ? the world?s experiment in the system of Democracy (people under the rule of law, rather than the rule of hierarchy- a revolutionary concept at the time) ? was founded in 1776, the last time Pluto traveled through Capricorn.
Social and government systems are based upon the needs of the time.? As the times change, if the systems governing society do not change with the times, stagnancy occurs and a resulting discontent with the established order of things.? The existing governments that no longer serve the needs of the people they are governing are all going through a period of transformation and renewal?the old, stagnant structures are being exposed and purged so that a new order can emerge.? This is the underlying theme.? However, Pluto moves slowly through Capricorn and this metamorphosis is gradual over time… UNLESS something triggers this potent force and disrupts it too radically.
The trigger occurred when Uranus entered Aries and squared Pluto (May 2010-May 2018).? This is what we are all experiencing now.? The war between wanting to be free and having daily life match our vision of the future ? versus ? attachment to the established order of things.??? Because both Aries and Capricorn are Cardinal signs, this conflict is very action-oriented and openly, actively displays the warring between the fierce independence of the drive to express oneself without restrictions ? versus – the principles of protocol and established order.? And Uranus always adds an unsettling, revolutionary element to what?s going on, stirring the pot.
Humankind is always in a state of upward progress.? Simultaneously, it is our nature to prefer the comfort of the status quo.? Thus from time to time an external force intervenes in our lives to wake us up again and inspire us to reach for greater horizons, a more evolved level of living.? This is one of those times: we are in a process of intense change and progress.? As in every area, ?the house gets dirtier before it?s clean?.
The best way to navigate this year is to reach out and seek to create positive results though uniting with others in partnership.? The Team Effort is what will take us through and create a victory in 2015?both on the personal and global level.? We may not have control over the global, but in our personal worlds we can begin practicing the habit of being more tactful in our speech, taking the viewpoint of the other person into account.? We can unite with peers of like mind and work together toward a common goal.? We can behave more lovingly, especially with the people closest to us, thus creating more love in our personal world.
During 2015, attempts to ?go it on our own? are scheduled for less success than when we approach with the strength of a team behind us.? Compromise does not mean losing integrity.? It is recognizing that to be a team, both people?s needs are expressed, heard and taken into account when decisions are made.? If we are pledged to a mutual goal with our teammate(s), an enormous force for good ? as well as joy in our personal lives ? is created.
