Crazy Times: 2009-2015

The following is being reprinted from Victoria’s Astro-Updates 2/3/11
Hey everyone. People have been asking me a lot of questions about what is going on in Egypt right now and what astrological factors are contributing to the current volatility. Part of it was sparked by a very short term transit of the Sun and Mars in Aquarius over the last days. But that was just a trigger to something much larger. What we are seeing is part of an astrological pattern that has been running strong over the past 2 years plus. And it ain’t over yet. I am not a fear monger and we can get through this, but the world is changing before our eyes, and it is very important to keep our eyes wide open. I got a lot of strong reactions to this newsletter when I sent it out in May of 2010; some positive, some skeptical. So, I just thought I’d give you all a chance to read it again, and put it in the context of today. I remain a realist and cautious optimist, and I truly believe in the power of prayer and the power of belief. This is certainly a time to use our spiritual energy for its highest good, and send a powerful message of peace through the psychic airwaves.

Interesting Times
I was very disappointed to find out that the old saying, “May you live in interesting times.” is not Chinese at all, and isn’t even an old expression. Oh, well. None of that changes the fact that we ARE living in them. And is it a blessing, or a curse? Well, probably both. So here we go! And it certainly will not be boring.
June is Busting Out All Over, and then some!
There are a slew of important astrological events this June. I’m not going to cover ALL of them, but I’m going to give you the low down on the really important stuff. And it really is a BIG DEAL, so head’s up, everybody.
Uranus in Aries
The planet Uranus (change and revolution) entered the fire sign Aries on May 27, 2010. Holy Smoke! Uranus by nature is volatile. It’s pure cosmic nitro-glycerine just waiting for a good shake. It hasn’t been in Aries since April 1, 1927 folks. And it’s been waiting. One notable occurrence immediately following Uranus’ entrance into Aries in April of 1927 was the Great Mississippi Flood. There was a lot of significant political/warlike activity as well, particularly in China. But the biggest thing that began setting up was something that would change the world and last for over a decade. The Great Depression was rearing it’s ugly head.
You’ve got to say, “I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!” Then we’ll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open your window, stick your head out and yell, “I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!” Network
That’s pretty much it, in a nutshell. With Uranus in Aries, everybody gets very hot under the collar. People feel like mowing down the opposition. This can be positive, if you are using the energy to get off your butt and start living your life like you REALLY mean it. But that isn’t what everybody is going to do. People are going to be fed up and they aren’t going to want to put up. In essence, dominance, power, and control will be the order of the day. And on this planet, that means WAR.
I’m not saying there isn’t something good about Uranus in Aries. It’s a spectacular energy. And many people will use this energy to totally transform their lives. But the flip side will be raging and people are going to react and they are going to ACT.
Just think of all the big shots in Washington D.C., Iran, North Korea, Pakistan, as well as everybody else milling around Times Square. They all think they’ve got damned good reasons to smack some major ass. Even if there will be some backing down from July though December when Uranus goes retrograde, from this point on, it’s going to be a new world. Master Astrologer Michael Lutin
But for gosh shakes, you my readers, have a CHOICE. Yes, many of you will be pissed off as hell about someone or some thing. But make a conscious effort to use this rocket fuel to blast off to the life you really want to live. This is a giant wake-up call. So wake up! But keep your head screwed on as you forge ahead into this new frontier. And realize that many people around you may adopt a real “take no prisoners” attitude. Choose your battles and keep your wits about you and you just might completely revolutionize your life over the next couple of years. And in the mean time, if you see someone coming your way with a chain saw, they might not just be planning to cut up some fire wood.
Jupiter conjunct Uranus
From now until February of 2011, Jupiter (expansion, success) conjoins Uranus (innovation, freedom.)
This could be our ace in the hole. This will spark amazing new ideas and innovations. It won’t cancel out the other energies that are afoot, but it will certainly serve as inspiration that may help us get through the challenges. This combination is also linked to technological breakthroughs and scientific discoveries. One word to the wise; this combo does tend to magnify and exaggerate things, and that can go either way, really. In other words, if this power duo lines up with something particularly intense, (which it will) you can be sure that whatever it triggers will be really BIG. It can also foster a lot of false optimism, so beware.
Uranus in Aries Square Pluto in Capricorn
Until November 17, Uranus (change, revolution, unexpected events) squares Pluto (emotional changes, irresistible transformation, overwhelming force). These planets are both really heavy hitters in their own right. Uranus can be like a lightening strike; either bringing in a blast of cosmic truth, or Thor’s hammer coming down on your head. And Pluto? Well, they don’t call him the Lord of the Underworld for nothing! Pluto can serve as the agent for the most powerful and profound changes of your life. But Pluto can be volcanic in it’s delivery. So, put these two guys in a square or tense aspect with each other, and, well, let the games begin! With these two in tandem, the term “earth-shattering” comes to mind. And pleeeeze don’t fault me for sounding negative here folks. I’m just calling them like I see them.
Uranus square Pluto is part of an astrological pattern that people have been calling the “Cardinal Climax”, in which Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto, form a T-cross on first degrees of the cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn.) Right before, during, and after the Lunar Eclipse of June 26, the Sun and Mercury will join in and create a Grand Cross, and at the Eclipse, the Moon will make a total of seven planets in the Grand Cross. Saturn will still be in late Virgo at that time, but it will still be part of the party. The Cardinal T-Square pattern continues through the end of 2010, some of its influence will still be in effect in 2011, including the Uranus-Pluto square. This influence is unprecedented, at least in our lifetimes, and the acceleration of change will be spectacular. The word “explosive” comes to mind. I guess it goes without saying that this ain’t going to be a walk in the park. But once again, when the going gets tough, the tough get going, so some of this energy will serve to mobilize powerful forces inside of us that we can channel for the good.
Earth Changes
Oh, and by the way. You might remember me telling you that Uranus is an earthquake trigger. Well, with the energy lineup that is setting up later this month, I would be surprised if we didn’t see some dramatic forces of nature displaying their wares. I would imagine earthquakes will be part of the deal, but volcanic activity comes to mind as well. And you know, nothing would surprise me, quite frankly. So, and I’m kind of not kidding, make sure you have one of those survival kits in the garage, okay? If I feel any weird psychic feelings about any of this beforehand, I will certainly give you all a heads up.
The “Soulution”
There’s actually a lot more going on this month, but this is a lot to digest. And the items I highlighted are definitely going to take center stage. Saturn did go direct the other day, and this may assist some of us in our quest to get beyond our current limitations. Take note, Virgos!
My main message is this. Move into this period with your eyes wide open. This is an important time. Not just because we will see dramatic events as history unfolds before our eyes. But because we all need to realize that we have a chance to move into this new energy in a state of grace and strength. The time is nigh. If you’ve been in a funk, time to get out of it. If you’ve been delaying important decisions, make them. If you’ve been sitting on your hands, stand up! There isn’t any more time to waste. Take a stand, for your self. Get your own energy into the best place you know how to get it. It’s time to connect to the Peaceful Warrior within you. Be impeccable. Stand up tall. Meditate deeply and join your energy with The Force (yes, I am a Star Wars geek.) This IS the answer. So my suggestion? Make a commitment to yourself, right now, to embrace the light and drop any negativity you are holding on to. Drop it like a bag of bricks, as my friend Cutter once told me. Do that. Right now. Now, more than ever before, we need to become the conduits for positive change. I’m signing up for that. How about you?
