This is the "Care and feeding of a New World Age" report for Gregorian date of September 16th 2014 for 1 - Ix "eesh" or Jaguar in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, with Pluto moving direct, the Sun moving into Libra for the Equinox, the Libra New Moon, and Mercury moving into Scorpio.
September 16th 2014 is 1 - Ix "eesh" or Jaguar carries the themes of shamanism, earth magic, strength and intellect, spirit of the jungles, gratitude, speed and stealth, Mother Nature, feminine and feline energy, mysticism, and expansion of consciousness. The Jaguar represents the primal spiritual force that inhabits all of us. To the Maya the Jaguar’s spotted coat represents the Milky Way Galaxy. The Maya also refer to the Milky Way the "White Boned Serpent: Wakan Chan " and the "path in the sky to the center of the universe: Kuxan Suum." This 13 day cycle is about exposing our dark spots to the light and being transformed. This is a time to release fear so we can be in our intuition and also to turn our attention and actions to taking care of our planet and our bodies.
Before I get into the daily energy for 1 - Ix "eesh" or Jaguar trecena, on the 16th all the planets appear to be moving forward from our vantage point on Earth except Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto which appear to move retrograde or in reverse motion. Chiron retrograde in Pisces is about releasing stuck emotional energy, so that we can return to the natural flow of life. Uranus in Aries is seeking to shake our very foundation through the unexpected rebellion of the individual. Obviously this is a difficult time of upheaval, destruction, death, unexpected change, natural disasters, violence and war. Retrograde Uranus in Aries will have people wanting to hurry the process of getting free. To push the river of revolution whether it be personal or governmental. I think that this is the time of detaching (Uranus) to act as an unobstructed individual (Aries). Being an outer planet, Uranus creates events that we "respond" to. The inner planets effect us personally as individuals, but the outer planets change the landscape which effects us as a collective and as individuals within humanity. Neptune in its own sign of Pisces is seeking transcendence through spiritual experiences. This will be a time to use spiritual practices to keep us grounded as we expand our intuition and consciousness. This will be important energy to nurture as we are in the middle of four years of the challenging Uranus Pluto squares that have been affecting us as a collective and as individuals. Pluto represents death, completion, and in Capricorn, the breakdown of structures, to bring about transformation. Pluto in Capricorn is determined in exposing the darkness, destroying the old order, so that we can rise up like the Phoenix from the ashes to soar again. Capricorn is about large structures which includes banks, governments, corporations, and religions. This is a time of a cosmic course correction for the entire planet.
The big change during the Jaguar trecena is Pluto changing directions, as it moves from retrograde to direct on September 22nd. With Pluto, the planet of transformation through a death and rebirth cycle, has been retrograde since April, which is about reviewing the past, required releasing anything from the past that is a burden to our new path. Pluto will take our baggage regardless of our attachment, if it doesn't have a purpose in our rebirth. What I find interesting about the astrology of September is Pluto in Capricorn slows to a stop and begins its forward or direct motion on the 22nd. Planets are said to be at the peak of their power when they are stopped. Pluto rules power and the misuse of power. So I expect issues regarding the misuse of power will become even more public after Pluto is moving direct. When I think about the news from Ferguson Missouri, the militarization of police in the USA, Gaza, Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan. These are all examples of the misuse of power.
Pluto moved into Capricorn in 2008 which was the point when the overly optimistic investments of Pluto in Sagittarius started to crash. Pluto in Capricorn is determined in exposing the darkness, destroying the old order, so that we can rise up like the Phoenix from the ashes to soar again. Pluto will be in Capricorn until 2024, and early in its transit through a sign there is a breakdown phase, where something that no longer serves us is dismantled to create space for something new. Capricorn is about large structures which includes banks, governments, corporations, and religions. This is a time of a cosmic course correction for the entire planet. We cannot continue to harm Mother Earth for the economic gain of a few. Pluto is about power and empowerment which I believe is about our spiritual evolution from being conditioned to live in fear of not getting our needs met, like too many rats in a maze, to realizing there is enough for all, we don't need to fight each other. We have been sold, and at a high price I might add, the concept of "manufactured lack." It is the resistance to Pluto's lesson of letting go of the past, that brings tragedy and pain. Capricorn is about building and achievement and as an earth sign it's rooted in the material world. The goat climbing the highest mountains is its symbol. Pluto rules the underworld so look for more events from underground such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and giant sink holes, and events involving tunnels or subways, and infrastructures in general, but also battles for underground resources, such as oil and fracking. Here in Maine we are battling the Nestle corporation as their subsidiary Poland Springs is taking legal action against the locals over water rights, as they drain the aquifer for profit, while people's wells are going dry. Across the US there are reports of efforts to squeeze water out of drought ridden places for sale and for fracking. Capricorn is also about the elderly and in the U.S. we have a political battle over social security, which was paid for by people's payroll deductions and has nothing to do with the national debt, but because our government borrowed from social security and has no way to pay it back, they want to dismantle this life line for our seniors.
Pluto was last in Capricorn from 1762 to 1778 where it transformed political and economic structures all over the world, from the end of the Seven Years War when France ceded Canada to Britain, to political unrest in Europe and her Colonies which brought changes to many nations. Catherine the Great came to power after the murder of her husband and went to war with the Ottoman Empire which yielded Russian control of Turkish territories. Poland was divided into three sections owned by Austria, Prussia, and Russia. British Parliament passed the Stamp Act to pay for the cost to quell the Colonial rebellion which than escalated into the American Revolution. That sounds familiar, increasing taxes to maintain control of an oppressed population, resulting in the overthrow of the oppressor. It couldn't happen again... or could it with Pluto in Capricorn. I'm thinking about current events related to the previous Pluto cycles during the first American Revolution the colonists were against "Taxation without representation", but isn't that what we have now in the USA? Our elected officials do not represent their constituents and are rather in the pockets of multinational corporations. The story of the misuse of power continues.
The parallels between Britain during the previous Pluto in Capricorn from 1762 to 1778 and the United States currently are significant. Britain was deeply in debt after the Seven Years War, which occurred while Pluto was in Sagittarius. They had colonized many countries and needed revenue from their subjects, both at home and aboard. The British Empire was spread thin to maintain their global territory. One of the sources of income from outside of England came from the East India Trading Company, which is remembered for trading in tea, although their main commodity was opium, which was grown in India, using forced labor, and sold to China. The ships then return to England with China black tea for the wealthy. The British Government publically condemned the trade of opium, but secretly supported the practice because of the revenue it produced. The East India Company also provided ships for the slave trade. The parallels between Britain during the last Pluto in Capricorn period and the United States during this time of Pluto in Capricorn are uncanny. Both nations increased the lands under their charge through wars that had plunged them into debt. They then seek to recover their lost fortune through unfair and oppressive actions, allowing companies to be become so large they can run other countries, as the East India Company ran India during that time period. Eventually this leads to the oppressed masses saying "enough is enough", which led to the first American Revolution last time.
The previous Pluto in Capricorn time period was 1516 to 1533 which was the time period when exploration of the New World yielded the colonies, but also the anti-Catholic Church movement with Martin Luther nailing his thesis to the church door in 1517. So this could also bring forward more of the misuses of power by the Catholic church.
This time of Pluto at the peak of power, has it moving aggressively towards its sixth of seven challenging squares to Uranus in Aries, which will be exact on December 15th at 12 degrees. These challenging angles between Uranus, the planet of disruption, revolution and unexpected change in Aries, the sign of the individual, challenging Pluto the planet of death and destruction but also rebirth, in the sign of Capricorn representing structures including governments and corporations, is the most powerful transit of our time. The seeds of these events of these Uranus Pluto square were planted during the three Uranus Pluto conjunctions of 1965 to 1967. These two titans have exact confrontations an amazing seven times between 2012 and 2015. Usually this type of transit occurs three or five times. Seven times is unusual and very intense. The world will be a very different place by the end of 2015.
Ok let's look at the daily vibrational energy for this trecena.
September 16th 2014 for 1 - Ix "eesh" or Jaguar: unity experienced through enjoying nature. Mercury retrogrades force us to slow down and pay more attention to our lives by making us focus on the details of our daily experience. When looking at a retrograde cycle of any of the personal or inner planets, it provides information about a correction to our present course. During this report period we have Mercury beginning to travel through the first stage of the retrograde process since 9/14. There are two important points to be aware of in looking at the cycle. We look at the point where the planet appears to move backwards and the point where it appears to move forward again. The first stage represents the shadow time between passing 16 degrees Libra, the point where the planet will eventually begin moving forward again and the point where the planet slows, stops, and begins moving in reverse, 2 degrees Scorpio on 10/4. During the first stage we receive information about needing to adjust our direction. Also on the 16th the Cancer Moon trines Neptune which brings out our innermost subconscious fantasies and daydreams confusing reality, which may not be great for accomplishing much work. The 17th is 2 - Men "men" or Eagle: duality experienced through seeing from a higher perspective, with Venus opposing Chiron, which we may feel as tension in our relationships or regarding money that brings our past wounds to the surface, to allow conscious healing. Also on the 17th the Moon in Cancer is opposed by Pluto, in harmony with Venus, and challenged by Uranus which starts with bringing deep emotions rising to the surface, then later having pleasant energy to be with friends and loved ones, and finally people are likely to act hasty and jump to conclusions. September 18th is 3 - Cib "keeb" or Wisdom: taking action through introspection, meditation and forgiveness, with the Cancer Moon finding support from Saturn, challenged by Mercury, and in harmony with the Sun, which starts with having a sober realistic view of life, then later has our moods influencing our ability to think rationally, and finally feeling balance between our inner and outer worlds. The 19th is 4 - Caban "kah-ban" or Earth: stability through gratitude for Mother Earth, with the Leo Moon finding support from Mars which brings the energy for asserting ourselves in a positive manner and standing our ground if necessary. September 20th is is 5 - Etznab "etz-nob" or Flint: empowerment through being introspective, with the Moon in Leo merging with Jupiter, supported by Uranus, and challenged by Saturn, which shifts from good feelings and generosity towards others, to later having the impulse to engage in activities that make us feel more alive, and finally people feeling lonely or isolated. The 21st is 6 - Cauac "cow-ack" or Storm: being in the flow through recognizing the gifts in adversity, while Venus sextiles Saturn and Mars squares Neptune. With Saturn harmonizing with Venus we feel, in a positive way, the obligations in our relationships. There is a sense of duty of being of service to our loved ones. People will be more likely to hold group ideals above their own for a day or so. This is a day to be clear about our relationships based on concrete reality rather than wishful thinking. This would be a good day to sit down with your lover to discuss your relationship, where a conscious understanding can be reached about what each of you expects from the partnership. Remember they're not perfect either and move forward with open eyes. Because of the focus on practical reality, this transit can be good for business dealings. Creative activities that require a close attention to detail are favored under this transit. It also may bring new friendships or relationships with older people or you may be the older person. Expect intellectual conflicts where folks try to convince each other of their personal "truth" while Mars is squaring Neptune which can be difficult because it brings up a sense of doubt and discouragement. This also brings energy for confrontations where people feel inadequate and try to avoid challenges that they hoped would just go away. People also question what they are doing with their lives or have others trying to convince that they are making a mistake and need to change their life's direction. Times like these I appreciate knowing my Human design strategy and authority to recognize what decisions are correct for me. Neptune and Mars can bring "deceitful actions" or taking a "devious course" to avoid adversity. Physical energy is likely to be low under this influence, so it would be good to avoid excessive strain. Basically this energy is about conserving your energy while confronting your fears. Recognize that this will last a few days so it's best not to get lost in any hopeless feelings. Also on the 21st the Moon in harmony with Mercury, challenged by Mars, and opposed by Neptune, which begins with being very social and having lots of conversations, then the potential for people to be irritable and have needless disputes, and finally feeling sensitive emotionally but confused regarding the accuracy of what's being felt. September 22nd is 7 - Ahau "ah-how" or Sun: reflection through honoring the wisdom and memory of our ancestors, with the Equinox on the 22nd as the Sun moves into Libra which is the sign of the Sun's fall, which means that the Sun is debilitated in the sign of the scales. Equinox and solstices astrology charts give us insight to the coming season and this one with the Jupiter trine Uranus and Mars square Neptune in tight aspect, we are looking at support for opportunities to create unexpected change, but also the possibility that people act with deceit and to delude others in the upcoming season. Saturn is sextile the Moon Venus conjunction so we are looking at limitation and the need for discipline regarding money, and love, along with having realistic expectations through being calm and reflective. As folks develop personal courage, and become less dependent on the opinions of others (Mars square Neptune), the Libran will lose the vacillation and hesitation for which this sign is so well known, and become an authority (Sun) in issues of justice and fairness (Libra), prepared to take responsibility (Saturn) for the consequences of their actions (Libra) through embracing the opportunities (Jupiter) to make unexpected changes personally and politically (Uranus). North of the Equator it is time to review the intentions we planted during the Spring Equinox. South of the Equator this is time to plant new intentions for the upcoming year. Also on 22nd Pluto turns direct which slowly shifts the energy of the planet of death, rebirth and transformation from our inner experience during the retrograde period, to the outer world as it continues to destroy the decaying Capricorn structures of government, big business, and big religion. This has Pluto moving towards its next confrontation with Uranus on December 15th for their 6th of 7 squares, which will be a dramatic time as the resistance of the old forms continues to collapse in its conflict with those seeking individual liberty. Pluto is affecting many of us as it changes directions at 11 degrees of Capricorn, which is a time of increasing intensity and force, when superficiality will not be enough. This will be particularly intense for people with personal planets at 11 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn. Pluto is at the peak of its power, due to its lack of movement as it changes directions. This can be destructive energy that needs to fulfill its purpose as transformation. It's really best to hold lightly and let go if needed. Surrender that which has out lived its purpose. Also on the 22nd the Virgo Moon finds support from Pluto which brings out intense emotions and stimulating sensitivity, which also favors sexual relationships. The 23rd is 8 - Imix "e-meesh" or Crocodile: balance through nurturing new beginnings, with the Moon in Virgo harmonizing with Saturn, and merging with Venus which shifts from wanting to be alone in our thoughts and feelings, to later having cheerful, warm, gregarious feelings, and wanting to go out and socialize. September 24th is is 9 - Ik "eek" or Wind: patience experienced through communication, while we have the Libra New Moon merging with the Sun, stimulated by Mars, and challenged by Pluto. Pluto square this New Moon can bring the compulsion to engage in activities that are not good for us in the long run, but it can also help us to look inside and find what we want in any situation, as long as we are honest with ourselves. Be cautious of power struggles as people will easily slip into the role of victim or perpetrator. Moon stimulated by Mars brings the desire to work independently from others. New moons are times of new beginnings and in Libra is about balance, partnership, diplomacy, and ascetics. With Pluto interacting with this new moon, new beginnings might include something that needs to be released. New Moons bring the opportunity to set an intension for manifestation on the following full moon. Look to the house of your astrology chart that contains 1 degrees 8 minutes Libra to consider what area of your life is being activated by this new moon. For me that would be my fourth house of the home and inner world, so I would set an intension related to using this energy, such doing something to beautify my home or some type of inner work that is astatically pleasing on that day. That would fulfill the Libra New Moon's desire for pleasantry and beauty through the fourth house's role of inner world and the home. Jupiter trine Uranus in this new moon chart may bring surprising opportunities and the confidence to take a risk that could lead to a new beginning that includes more freedom and independence. With the ruling planet of Libra, Venus unaspected or without a connection to other planets in the chart, suggests that the focus on relationships with be balanced with the need for autonomy and freedom from the Jupiter Uranus trine. The 25th is 10 - Akbal "awk-bol" or Night: manifestation through contemplating the stars, while Jupiter trines Uranus which brings the desire for expression by doing something outside of the normal routine. Folks will want to experience a new type of freedom and to discover aspects of living that until now were unknown. The inner effect is to explore metaphysical and philosophical matters for inner truth, and outwardly through some new activity. People are more open to new ideas which may lead to diverting from the path that has turned into a rut. This transit can bring a sudden surprise opportunity or some sort of new chance that can be beneficial. Also on the 25th the Libra Moon harmonizes with Jupiter and is opposed by Uranus which brings the feeling being in the flow and having a sense of wholeness, while folks are emotionally excitable and impulsive. September 26th is 11 - Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard: resolution through planting seeds and making new connections, with the Moon merging with Mercury and finding support from Neptune, which shifts from positive energy for integrating our thoughts and moods, to later our innermost subconscious fantasies and daydreams confusing reality, which may not be great for accomplishing much work. The 27th is 12 - Chicchan "chee-chan" or Serpent: understanding through being flexible, with Mercury moving into Scorpio which, due to turning retrograde October 4th, will spend almost only 12 days in the sign of the scorpion before returning to Libra. Mercury in Scorpio brings a questioning and probing intellect. That seeks out what is beneath the surface, and puts an emphasis on fields like medicine, science, religion, and the occult. So under this influence folks may feel a greater need to investigate and uncover what previously could not be known. Also on the 27th the Scorpio Moon in harmony with Pluto and challenged by Jupiter, the day moves from having deep emotions finding their way to the surface and felt on a profound level, to later having benevolent and generous feelings for those in our immediate environment. September 28th is 13 - Cimi "key-mee" or Transformation: movement to the next stage through releasing what no longer serves us, with the Moon in Scorpio merging with Saturn, and in harmony with Venus. The days starts with wanting to be alone in our thoughts and feelings, and later wanting to be with friends and the people we love.
So no matter what energies are affecting you during this 1 Jaguar trecena, take some time to be in the flow of the planet by being in nature, watching a sunrise or sunset, communing with the stars, being conscious of the moment through introspection, meditation or being with someone you love. Every day is a blessing no matter what dramas beckon to distract us. We are all giving the performance of a life time on this world stage, just take some time to observe the play as well as act your part. Remember you are a spiritual being having a human experience.
