As I was looking at the transits from November 2012 to January 2013, I noticed two cases of overlapping symmetries in terms of transit timing.
The first symmetry I noticed was the Sun-Mercury Rx “Seed Moment” being midway between the eclipses. Eclipses are always two two weeks apart, but it is very rare that the “Seed Moment”, (when a retrograde Mercury conjuncts the Sun) that this Seed Moment happens not only between eclipses, but half way between them. The times between eclipses, which happens usually twice a year, is said to be when the wheel of fate turns. We can hear news of sudden comings or goings. So when a Seed Moment happens between eclipses, this could imply that we are now processing unexpected news and planting seeds or ideas which may first sprout, or show results, the next time Sun conjuncts Mercury, on or around January 18, 2013, when Mercury is orbiting in direct motion.
The second case of symmetry I saw is the December 21 Winter Solstice moment occurring midway between the two Sun-Mercury conjunctions which I just mentioned above. The Winter Solstice moment is important in that it is a turn of events. From this moment, in our Northern Hemisphere, the days turn from being shorter and shorter each day, to getting longer and longer each day. This year the Winter Solstice is particularly newsworthy as it is associated with the ending of a portion of the Mayan calendar. No matter which way we look at it, the world is not ending, but a paradigm shift is in place.
I started to think about what effect symmetry can have in a structure. The symmetry of our human bodies helps ground and balance complex our complex human existence. Similarly, the symmetries in timing may also help ground and balance deep transformational lifestyle changes we are experiencing here on Earth. In the face of challenges, any pattern in a structure can help to make sense of what can seem chaotic.
To tie all of the astrology together, Jupiter, the good luck planet will station forward on Jan 30 at 7° Gemini. This is the same degree as the November Lunar eclipse. This brings another connection between November and January. Just as the November seed moment hatches in January, this seems to be when projects seem like they may float or even fly. One of the few ways that Jupiter is like a cat, is that Jupiter always lands on its feet. Unlike a cat, Jupiter can also add an optimistic boost to our emotions and outlook so it is important to keep our thoughts positive and our morals high.
2013 is just around the corner. We know now what paradigms are shifting, and the magic of how we get “there” is so close and yet so far and yet unfolding anyway.
And so I close again with a quote from Louise Hay, the master goddess of postive thinking:
“All of the barriers in my life are dissolving. The gateways to wisdom and learning are always open, and more and more, I am choosing to walk through them. Barriers, blocks, obstacles, and problems are personal teachers giving me the opportunity to move out of the past and into the Totality of Possibilities.” — Louise Hay
