With Jupiter’s move into Virgo this summer, and Saturn’s move into Sagittarius, we are seeing a shift of emphasis into the mutable signs. Neptune and Chiron, also both slow-moving, are already in Pisces. This creates a T-square pattern — at least by sign if not by exact degree.
The strongest part of this pattern is a right-angle or square aspect between Saturn and Neptune. This becomes exact on November 26, and then in June and September next year. Meanwhile, Jupiter in Virgo will also square Saturn next spring. This means this T-square will never lock into an exact aspect, but Saturn will carry the energy from Neptune to Jupiter and back again over the coming year. So there’s a great deal of fluidity and movement going on — and a lot of tension. This is not going to be a static 12 months ahead.
Look also to Gemini, the mutable sign which is the “empty leg” of the T-square. The direction in which much of the force of Saturn in Sagittarius may be directed. Gemini is the sign of journalism, curiosity and children.
The Moon’s nodes also switched from cardinal Aries-Libra to mutable Pisces-Virgo on November 12. The Nodes show us where the eclipses will be focused in the coming 18 months. This is an axis in your own chart where you can expect rapid evolution. We’ll look at this more in a later post.
So I think it would be useful to revisit posts about how each of these planet/sign combinations might work.
