Talented singer-songwriter Cari Ray sings a song about Nothin’. It’s going through my head as I’ve listened to it way too much this last week. If she can sing a song about nothin’, why not blog about nothin’?
Nothin’ as you’ll hear in the song contains both anything and everything. Nothin is a powerful thing, like the discovery of zero.
In March 2019, Uranus first entered the earth sign of Taurus. Often changes do occur with this astrological symbolism – planets changing signs. “You said there would be financial changes,” I heard from a friend.
Yeah, I got it wrong, the timing at least. Here’s the thing about Uranus – it’s sudden; it’s volatile. But that’s for a reason. Shock shifts you quickly into a different state. In the heart of Uranus is the desire to make you more aware.
Are we now aware of global infrastructure? We are all now knowledgeable about the global supply chain. Supply being equal to Taurus because Taurus is stuff – tangible, physical, real.
Uranus is volatile but, looking back, we chose this volatility. We chose is globally through a myriad of big and small choices.
We’re taught that humans developed as a straight-line progression from stupid cave man to intelligent iPhone developer yet history proves this incorrect. There is great volatility in development just as when you learn a lot of new things at once you tend to forget a bunch of it.
Uranus is in Taurus for seven years. It’s the seven-year itch you’ve heard about so expect to itch in many physical ways for this period. It’s awakening us to the needs of the earth and body.
Pluto and Neptune
With Uranus, Pluto and Neptune comprise the triad that is referred to as the outer planets. In most human lives, we are kept busy with the personal and ignore the transpersonal unless it hits us in the face.
It’s hit us in the face.
Pluto in Capricorn has brought us extreme authority. Neptune in Pisces has brought many manifestions of this mutable fish sign – compassion, sharing, love of Mr. Rogers, escapism through drugs and alcohol and excessive involvement with moving image.
Yet as a person, an individual, one entity among many, what can I do to affect the whole?
Nothing. Anything. Everything.
Nothing – quieting the agitation that leads us to the many things we do helps ourselves and others. Anything we can do to help others helps the whole. Everything we do is part of what we experience in our lives.
It’s a time to understand our underlying beliefs and how they create the outer reality. We share beliefs. One individual’s beliefs are in counter to the whole is called delusion (or today, conspiracy theory). When many share the same beliefs, healthy or unhealthy, it’s called culture.
We have several more years of these transits. We had our first blast in 2008 and decided to push it under the rug and pretend it never happened and returned to our “normal” behavior.
Normal is changing, as normal does.
Jupiter and Saturn
These two planets are traveling together in Capricorn and adding energy to Pluto. Historically these planets traveling together create problems for those in authority.
What is authority?
In my country, we believe we “elect” them but only at the lower levels of government is this true. At the highest, we truly have no choice. In the Middle Ages men fought for power with swords and other weapons. Today they fight with money. And we tend to choose the side of the fighting that serves us most.
But as with the Middle Ages, there are the haves and have nots in any situation. Jupiter and Saturn in Capricorn are reminding us of this.
What will we do?
Nothing? Anything? Everything?
All the inner planets
Inner planets (moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars) move quickly so I rarely blog about them since by the time I have time, the aspect has passed.
Time. I seem to have more of that now.
I’ve been saying I want more time. The universe must have listened.
Yet I hadn’t realized what I was asking for. To have time, the world needed to shut down and stop asking me to be here and there and there and there.
What to do with all this time?
Without Capricorn structure it’s easy to do nothing. When I think about what to do, there’s everything I’ve put aside due to no time. Hopefully there’s an “anything” I’ll do that’s in between nothing and everything.
