Hello, everyone.

Today is the day of the final Jupiter/Uranus conjunction, an aspect which begins a new fourteen year cycle of originality, technological advances, and innovations in products, processes, and services.   We experienced the first contact of this series in June in the sign of Aries, then again in retrograde motion in Pisces in September, and now in direct motion again in Pisces.  Soon both planets will continue into Aries.

Jupiter is the planet of expansion and opportunities, growth and optimism.  Uranus is the planet of innovation, unexpected breakthroughs, and societal transformation.  These two together are a powerhouse for business!

At the first contact back in June I wrote:

…what’s fun about this series of contacts is that Uranus expresses its energy in our lives in completely unpredictable ways.  This coupled with Jupiter’s love of sport means the coming six months may feel like a merry-go-round spinning at top speed:  you know the ditty, round and round and round we go and where we stop, nobody knows!  Yes, that’s Jupiter/Uranus.

This is a time of big risks, big opportunities, massive creative juice, and the potential for just as big mistakes and failures.  Especially early in the cycle, we are likely to begin one thing and another, throwing balls into the air to see where they land.  Where will we end up next January, after the last of the conjunctions?  In a new place for sure, but with Uranus, the planet of the unexpected, we won’t know until we get there.  Are you ready for the ride?

So how was it for you?  What balls did you throw in the air and where did they land?

And then at the retrograde contact in September I wrote:

Deep in the recesses of your mind, there is a new idea being born.  Yes, it may bear a resemblance to something you thought was left behind for good.  And while both planets are in retrograde motion, it may be hard to clearly distinguish the next step for your business innovation and that’s OK – it’s not time for a fully baked idea yet.  But if you listen carefully, you may hear the stirrings of your next big move, even if it sounds familiar.

By now the boundaries have given way; we’ve experimented, we’ve tested, we’ve taken risks, we’ve tried things that worked and others that failed.  The idea is ready and we’re right on track!

Looking back over the last six months, could you have foreseen what your plans are today?  I know when I think back to last June I thought I would be writing a series on Leadership for each astrological sign.  Now I intend to pursue my Master’s Degree in Archetypal Cosmology and Conscious Evolution and write an additional blog on the daily journey through astrology!  Talk about completely unpredictable, I didn’t even have a glimmer of this last June.

How about you?  What ideas and insights are ready for implementation?  It’s time to trust your intuition now.  If it’s not immediately apparent, scan your heart and mind.  The seed has been planted for your business innovation, your trek into the next fourteen years.  Now is the time to recognize what has begun.  Can you identify it?

Please share in the comments your breakthrough if you can.  It will be inspiring to hear what these two planets have brought to light.

A4B Today – September 21, A Glimpse of the Future

Source:Wikimedia Commons

Good Day!

Two days before the Full Moon, today is a day to let the currents pull you and your team toward the culmination stage in your current project.  You don’t have to do anything but avoid resistance:  the energy just before the Full Moon is a building force and all you have to do is go with it.

The Moon is Pisces brings ultra-sensitivity and a willingness to allow a whole vision to emerge.  Disparate viewpoints merge into coherence, making today ideal to put the finishing touches on a task or project you’ve been overseeing.

The Moon is also in harmony with Venus in Scorpio today which should take the edge off of any competition or subtle undermining that’s been going on.  The best of Venus comes out today, which means creativity and feelings of camaraderie.  Even your relationships with normal antagonists could flow into a working partnership today.

Today is also a day to keep your senses tuned to the next big thing, as the Sun in Virgo opposes the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in Pisces.  This conjunction receives the full light of the Sun today.  Something transformative is being conceived both societally and personally; the conjunction is the very beginning of a new cycle between Jupiter and Uranus and only comes around every fourteen years.  There will be three exact contacts of the conjunction at the beginning of this new cycle.  One occurred on June 8, the second is today, and the third is in early January.  This whole period from June to January is seeding the growth and innovation which will carry our businesses for the next decade and a half.

We have a good chance to get a glimpse of our next breakthrough today but we have to be aware of where to look for clues.  The news is a good place to start.  As you listen to or read the news today try to get the sense of where society is going from here.  Since the conjunction is in Pisces, be sure to especially tune in to the kinds of fields Pisces rules:  fashion, healthcare, the arts, the seas, liquids, physics and mathematics, spirituality, planetary awareness, and caring connection across unrelated groups.

Jupiter and Uranus both function on the level of intuition, so as you take in the day just let the information flow in.  Don’t try to categorize it or analyze it.  Just absorb it.  It will kick off processes in your mind that will rise to the level of awareness on their own with today’s solar opposition.

Today is a day to read the clues and get a sense of the future.  If you spot anything, share it with all of us in the comments.  You never know who will provide the spark for someone else’s breakthrough. Guesses are also fine under this influence; see what you can imagine!

A4B Today – September 17, One-Two Punch

Source:Wikimedia Commons

Good Day!

Today is relatively quiet but Saturday is gangbusters, and these planetary events are so powerful there’s no reason you wouldn’t be feeling them already.  Indeed they’ve been coloring the entire week.

Mars & Pluto

Mars in Scorpio forms an easeful aspect with Pluto in Capricorn on Saturday, which carries forward the tenor we’ve seen all week.  Pluto turned direct on Monday and Mars entered Pluto’s sign, Scorpio, on Tuesday.  We’ve cited examples of this combination all week so if you missed them be sure to check the prior posts.  And don’t miss the comments as readers shared their own stories.

With the harmonious aspect, there’s an open door for more revelations of hidden matters, whether these have been concealed from you by others or you’ve been concealing them from yourself.  There’s a great deal of power released when the truth bubbles to the surface so you may feel these new disclosures instigate a whole new purpose within you.

You may be taken aback and need to seclude yourself to adjust to the reality you glimpse over the next couple of days.  As much as we’d like to think we favor honest revelations, sometimes they require us to modify our own behavior.  Mars in Scorpio demands that we drop our own desires in favor of working in concert with others and for some of us, that’s hard!  And Pluto in Capricorn reveals the stark reality of our business and economic situations.  So it’s no picnic.

Jupiter & Uranus

The other major aspect is so different that I’m eager to see how they both play out together.  While Mars in Scorpio with Pluto is everything secretive, instinctual, defensive, and self-protective, there is also a Jupiter/Uranus conjunction exact on Saturday.  Jupiter and Uranus are bright, rational, clear, and future focused.  The two separate aspects are within two hours of each other Saturday evening (MDT), a one-two punch.

Jupiter and Uranus meet in their travels around the zodiac about every fourteen years.  Due to retrograde motion they may contact each other three times within a few months and then move apart again.  The current cycle began with their first contact on June 8 with both planets in the sign Aries.  Now both in retrograde motion, they meet in Pisces and will turn around to meet again in direct motion in Pisces in January.

I’m fascinated by the planets’ foray into Aries and then backing up into Pisces.  Aries is considered the first sign of the zodiac, the sign associated in the northern hemisphere with Spring.  When they met in June both planets were within the first degree of Aries.  Aries is the spark of individuality, the single organism separating from the collective and standing on its own.  But now they both moved back into Pisces!  It’s like that first fish that sprouted lungs, scratched onto the shore, takes one breath, and runs back into the sea!

To bring this into business terms, we were likely to really feel inspired in June under the first Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in Aries:  a new business, a new venture beckoned us; a break from the past seemed a reality.  And then both planets turned retrograde.  All of a sudden there were holes in our plan; the energy fell out; our enthusiasm waned.  As Jupiter and Uranus inched back into Pisces, our spark of Aries independence waned.  We fell back into a pattern from the past, one much less entrepreneurial and individualistic.  If you were experimenting with new business forms, you probably reverted.  If a new product idea seemed feasible, you probably had to let it go.  If you engaged new clients, the relationship may have stalled.

On Saturday Jupiter and Uranus meet again in retrograde motion.  Deep in the recesses of your mind, there is a new idea being born.  Yes, it may bear a resemblance to something you thought was left behind for good.  And while both planets are in retrograde motion, it may be hard to clearly distinguish the next step for your business innovation and that’s OK – it’s not time for a fully baked idea yet.  But if you listen carefully, you may hear the stirrings of your next big move, even if it sounds familiar.

One or Both?

So which will you experience, the subterfuge and power issues of Mars, Pluto, and Scorpio or the creative business idea of Jupiter and Uranus?  Let’s keep our senses peeled and continue to share in the comments what the next two days bring.

Have a revealing weekend!

A4B Today – July 20 Wisdom from Steven Forrest

Good Day!

This week we really begin to engage in the Cardinal T-square aspect of our summer of transformation.  These aspects unfold over the next four weeks in a series involving Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto, with Mars thrown in there in case it wasn’t hot enough already!

Here is the specific line-up although all of these planets are powerful enough that we will experience the aspect for a few weeks on either side of the exact day.  In other words, their conflicting energies will mix and mash and morph each other throughout the next few weeks.

A4B Today – June 9 Anticipation and Mountain Laurel

Source:Wikimedia Commons


Good Day!

The Moon continues its trek through Taurus, lending stability and practicality to the day.  This gives me the opportunity to explore more deeply the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction which was exact yesterday.

I’ve written here before that Uranus occasionally reveals itself as startling insights that seem to come from another dimension of our minds.  Yesterday, on the day of the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction, I woke up with two of these messages.

One was from the remnant of a fading dream, in which I walked around a corner and continued along the side of a building called “The Laurel under the Mountain Hideaway.”

This was followed a few moments later by these words:  “Ah, lovely, open, alive.  Anticipation without expectation.  Jupiter conjunct Uranus.”

I know enough to grab a pen immediately and jot down these kinds of communications.  They hold meaning, often at many different levels, and it is always fascinating to explore and try to decipher them.  Here’s my attempt as a celebration of this new day.

The Laurel under the Mountain Hideaway

I started my research with the word, Laurel.  Laurel wreaths, remember, were given in Roman times to victors returning from battle.  They are still awarded at certain schools to signify the attainment of a level of achievement.  I also read in Wikipedia that it is a huge family of flowering plants, some deadly poisonous and some yielding edible fruit like cinnamon, bay leaves, sassafras, and avocado.

Then I googled “Laurel under the Mountain”, and here’s where I struck gold.  There is a type of Laurel called Under the Mountain Laurel!  This led me to a study (“The influence of mountain laurel on regeneration in pitch pine canopy gaps of the Coweeta Basin, North Carolina, U.S.A.”) which revealed the important role Under the Mountain Laurel plays in the regeneration of seedlings in a pine forest.

At this point I started to understand the image, Laurel under the Mountain Hideaway, and its connection to Jupiter/Uranus in the very first degree of Aries.  If you’ve ever hiked among mountain laurel you know it forms a dense, almost impenetrable undergrowth.  Underneath this “hideaway” various species of saplings are taking root, deep in shadow, unseen, and shielded from wind.  This dense thicket protects the seedlings until they are ready to grow above the canopy.

This describes the moment we are experiencing now.  Unseen, possibly even unknown to us, there are new ideas taking root, quickened by Jupiter and Uranus in Aries.  But they are at the most infant stage right now.  They need protection and concealment to grow.  And there are many varieties of saplings in that Laurel hideaway; we have to wait to see which ideas will break through the dense canopy and stand on their own.

Anticipation without Expectation

I love this second message.  It has the sense of a direct admonition by Jupiter, who is always willing to give some advice.  “Lovely, open, alive”, apt keywords and good counsel for this time plus “anticipation without expectation.”  Yes, something is coming, yes, change is in the air, yes, we can feel it stirring.  But the right approach is without expectation for performance on our timeline, or for the transformation to conform to our plans.  “Anticipation” has a sense of spaciousness to me, knowing something is coming but wide open about what it will be; “expectation” has more of a sense of desire, my personal will pulling something I hope for toward me.

The two messages together seem to indicate the flavor of the time (Uranus) and how to address it (Jupiter).  A great reminder and, I believe, a message directly from the two planets for all of us.  Of course, symbolic language is open to many interpretations.  Do you see anything I missed?

Astro4Business Today – June 8, Earth and Fire

Source:Wikimedia Commons

Good Day!

Today welcomes the first of a string of Jupiter/Uranus conjunctions, this one in the Fire sign Aries.  Aries is the sign of new beginnings and these two giants teamed up in the first sign of the Zodiac in the very first degree of the sign indicates NEW in a big way.  But what’s fun about this series of contacts is that Uranus expresses its energy in our lives in completely unpredictable ways.  This coupled with Jupiter’s love of sport means the coming six months may feel like a merry-go-round spinning at top speed:  you know the ditty, round and round and round we go and where we stop, nobody knows!  Yes, that’s Jupiter/Uranus.

But looking at the other events in the sky today also brings up for me another adage:  we’re only given as much as we can handle.

Along with this immense, intense energy of Fire today, we are also blessed with lots and lots of Earth energy, the perfect remedy.  Once the Moon moves into Taurus today, it forms aspects with that Jupiter/Uranus conjunction, bringing poise, balance, and practicality to the day.  As much as we may feel like we’re spinning in a new direction, the Taurus Moon will calm us down and set us to work at our normal routines, grounding us and reminding us to stay in the moment and to deal with what’s in front of us.

The Moon goes on to form extremely beneficial aspects with Mars in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn, lending even more stability to the day.  And Mercury in Taurus teams up with Saturn in Virgo – this is a day to make a solid plan and execute on it too.

The Earth influence steadies the Fire.  Surely change is coming but on this day, the birthday of a new Jupiter/Uranus cycle, all our pleasant work habits and daily routines come to our rescue.  Breath by breath, step by step, task by task we channel fiery enthusiasm into a truly productive, remarkable day.

Phases of the Moon, as seen from the Northern Hemisphere. The Southern hemisphere will see a mirror image of this phase. (Source:Wikipedia)

Hello, everyone.

This week hosts the conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus in Aries, kicking off the summer of transformation.  Mars and Mercury change signs and the New Moon is in Gemini on Saturday.

Monday

On Monday Mars leaves its long journey through Leo and enters Virgo, a very different sign and a very different energy!  In the best sense, Mars, the energy of activity, desire, and will takes the lessons learned in Leo and uses its now-developed sense of self-esteem and creativity to serve others, to mentor, and to share knowledge.

However, it may take some trial and error to get there.  Mars the warrior is not particularly happy in the sign of the Virgin so it may take us a few days to get our new bearings.  The Mars energy in us can serve and work with diligence, but it wants the credit for doing so.  “Non-doership,” a good term for Mars in Virgo, can seem the antithesis of leadership in business but it doesn’t have to be.  It just demands sensitivity to the next right action, noticing and reading the pointers along the way.  We’ll look more at Mars in Virgo in upcoming posts to discover the best use of this time of possibilities.

Tuesday

Over the next eight months, Jupiter will form a series of conjunctions to Uranus.  Both have recently entered Aries where they will combine with Saturn and Pluto to form the Cardinal T-square 2010, the summer of transformation.

Jupiter and Uranus are similar in that they both look forward.  They are interested in breaking the boundaries that limit us and taking risks to do so.  Their difference is that Uranus breaks through boundaries for the sake of thrusting society into the future whether we think we are ready or not; Jupiter breaks boundaries and then wants to codify the breakthrough, turn it into a religion or a School or a law.   Jupiter is very much concerned with societal ethics and institutions while Uranus would break down our structures without caring whether we are still standing at the end.  The two of these together are dynamite!

What does this mean for us in business?  We will probably feel compelled to take risks we would not even have considered in the past.  We may feel confined by our work routine or the structures we’ve implemented, and surprise ourselves and others by heading into a brand new direction.  We may seek opportunities for travel and study, or to bring scientific or technical discoveries into our products and services.  We may approach everyday challenges as battles to be fought and won.  We want out of our shell, even if we created it.

This is a time of big risks, big opportunities, massive creative juice, and the potential for just as big mistakes and failures.  Especially early in the cycle, we are likely to begin one thing and another, throwing balls into the air to see where they land.  Where will we end up next January, after the last of the conjunctions?  In a new place for sure, but with Uranus, the planet of the unexpected, we won’t know until we get there.  Are you ready for the ride?

Wednesday through Friday

Mercury is featured from Tuesday evening until Friday, which will be a great help in understanding and adjusting to the Mars ingress into Virgo and the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction.

First Mercury and Saturn combine to bring wisdom, stability, and practicality.  It well help calm our reaction to the waves of energy coming from Jupiter and Uranus and help us be methodical in meeting the challenges that may arise this week.

Then Mercury and Neptune will serve to sensitize us and to remember that there are others in our sphere with their own needs and agendas.

On Thursday Mercury enters its own sign, Gemini, which puts it into position to channel the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in the most positive way.  It will give us the facility to communicate clearly and enthusiastically our new ideas and to win customers and employees over to our new vision.  This is a great aspect to recognize whatever new technology we need to implement our new direction and to research the various alternatives.  I wouldn’t purchase anything new though; with the Jupiter/Uranus energy in Aries, you probably haven’t settled into your new direction yet.  See if you can borrow or lease for a while instead.

On Friday, Mercury, newly in Gemini squares off against Mars, newly in Virgo.  This indicates people pushing and pulling in different directions and possibly forcing decisions before they are ready.  Send everybody off to research and present their best ideas, in a coherent format, and in writing, and PowerPoint, and anything else that keeps them productive and busy until they achieve a reasoned, practical proposal.

Saturday

This could be the most productive day of the week with an excellent contact between Venus and Saturn.  Your connections with partners and colleagues feel serious, committed, and grounded.  This is the best day for business negotiations and diplomacy but with the New Moon today, please wait until Monday to formalize any agreements.

I’d say that’s enough for one week, wouldn’t you?  Enjoy your week, take extra rest when you can, and see if you can let it unfold on its own a little.  You may be pleasantly surprised if you do.
