| Outer planets are what define the major events that happen from year to year, whether in an individual’s chart, a corporation’s or the nation’s. Because the outer planets ‘fall’ more slowly around the Sun they ‘ride’ over sensitive areas and aggravate them for extended periods of time. These are the planets furthest from the Sun in our Solar System. Outer planets dig deeper into the social psyche.|
The outer planets are Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. In a birth (natal) chart, all the planets are frozen in time, like a photograph. We are in the midst of a sea-change now, with transiting Neptune opposing the US natal Neptune. This coincided with the disastrous airlift out of Afghanistan, embarrassing the Biden administration. Natal Neptune conjuncts the US Midheaven. Natal Neptune also squares our natal Mars. Both ends of this alignment are being caught in this riptide. Neptune opposes Neptune, August 21, 2021. Neptune squares Mars, September 29th, 2001. But then transiting Neptune reverses direction and saturates these two positions again, on January 29th, 2022 (Mars), and March 1, 2022 (Neptune). Typically the triggers get pulled slightly ahead of these exact dates. These will be times during which life will show us what we didn’t know about ourselves, our administration and our adversaries.
Layered into this weave, Pluto is going to be demonstrating his power next year, probably revamping by defaulting our economy as it conjuncts its own natal position (Pluto conjunct Pluto) on February 20th, July 11th and December 24th, 2022. Not to be left out in the cold, Uranus contraparallels Mars within 24 hours of the first Pluto trigger, adding to its explosiveness.
As ruler of the Underworld (Pluto), it’s going to be one hell of a year. Immigration, and the displacement of thousands of people around the globe, will be one of the heralds of this epoch.
This is the Age of Pisces. Pisces is the poor and unfortunate, the thief and the beggar. Jesus sat at the table with these; not the high priests. As the herald of the New Age, it was his job. Neptune is the ruler of Pisces, embodying the same principles. Transiting Neptune is on the US Midheaven, making it an administrative problem for whomever got into office.
In the US chart Pluto rules the 12th house, Pisces generic home. The outer planets are ganging up on the immigrant situation, but in addition there will be crime and corruption at the white collar level which will be exposed throughout the year.
All roads lead to No-Where’s-ville.
But it’s the people with good hearts who show up to help.
