Current Configurations

by Henry Seltzer


Current Configurations

The Full Moon of January 3rd (see chart Full Moon Chart), at almost the very beginning of the month, aspects Uranus by trine and sextile and therefore triggers the upcoming JupiterUranus square. At this time also, Mercury is the Sun in Capricorn. Uranus in Pisces brings a surprising, even startling point of view to placid Pisces, and encourages us to look deep within ourselves for answers that we have known all along had we but the courage to acknowledge it. In the days following, Mercury will conjunct the Sun bringing an emphasis on mental abilities, and Venus will enter Aquarius and conjunct Chiron by the time of the Last Quarter Moon, bringing up old relationship patterns that we are ready to gain a better and more distant perspective on, thereby beginning to heal them.

The Last Quarter Moon of Thursday, January 11th (Last Quarter Moon Chart), triggers the forming SaturnNeptune opposition while the JupiterUranus square is getting much closer. Both of these configurations push us beyond previous limitations. SaturnNeptune urges us to find a spiritual middle ground, in which we neither leave planet Earth altogether nor give in to despair and the loss of hope for the future. We can use this energy to ground our dreams concretely into substance if we can only maintain our balance. In the days following, Mars conjuncts Pluto, triggered by the Moon on the 16th as Mars crosses into Saturn's sign of Capricorn. These are exciting times, and tough times. We may fall back on violence to ease the intensity of inner turmoil, or else take the high road of transforming our anger into positive action in support of a more enlightened point of view.

The New Moon of Thursday, January 18th (New Moon Chart), occupying the midpoint of the nearly completed JupiterUranus square and aspecting Pluto and Saturn also, reminds us to take our outrageous plans seriously rather than go out on a limb for no particular reason, although that also may happen, depending on the circumstances and our ability to keep our heads. Venus is also exactly conjunct Neptune at this time, putting us in closer touch with our dreams, especially our dreams of connection. Mercury is also beginning to conjunct Chiron, so that patterns of communication dysfunction are up for closer examination.

The First Quarter Moon, of Thursday afternoon, January 25th (First Quarter Moon Chart), is accompanied by a MercuryNeptune conjunction, bringing the possibility of mental deception or illusion into the picture. Jupiter still squares Uranus, and Saturn draws ever closer to an exact opposition with Neptune, as we assess the potential of our most recent initiatives actually working themselves out in reality. The themes of the SaturnNeptune opposition will wax stronger next month, and then again in June and July for the final pass. We are enjoined to use these energies wisely, to ground our spiritual impulses into practicality, and to further our pragmatic ideas in accordance with the thrust of Spirit inside us.
