Home / Feature Articles / THE SATURN/CHIRON SQUARES of 2017


[watercolour: Nebuchadnezzar (William Blake)]
For months now, those who have been embracing a new reality – one that sees many elements of an old-established order; a patriarchal-lead status-quo as being on its way out, have already begun their holy crusade to assuage society of its enormous pain felt from shame and inadequacy and relieve it from its ills. These are the ones who know about the pain, particularly of paternal wounding and they seek to find a way to understand it better so as to heal society from its dreadful woes.

Discussing the Saturn/Chiron this week on the Cosmic Bus, join me live.

Much is has being learned since Chiron began squaring Saturn in December 2016. By addressing those crusty, out-dated, horribly unsightly or crudely inappropriate elements in today’s culture we are looking to find the source of this problem. Those strongly defined behaviours and institutionalised structures that show increasingly less importance in today’s fast and tech-savvy world are coming into close scrutiny for our diagnosis. We are coming to see how these are no longer relevant, or their fear-factor is patently expired, and by learning to let go of their importance, shifting our focus upon what is most crucial insofar as showing structure and responsibility in our society, especially in spiritual terms.

These fringe-dwelling occupants of society have gradually become the quiet activists for bringing in……

…..alternatives methods to heal the issues now endemic in our physical universe. By learning to address their own wounds, especially in the patriarchy, they have endeavoured to develop ways that have at least allowed them to explore and find a more holistic, compassionate approach.

From this simple, yet ever illuminating ‘paradigm shift’, they have stood to clearly differentiate between what is truly important in their own personal evolution and what the exterior world/civilization keeps pitching at them. This brings matters to a level where they not only question everything, but often come to an outright rejection of whatever seems rigidly contrived or superficial. Those resonating strongly with the Chiron in Pisces arm of this square are much more readily keen to observe that many of the negative, outward phenomena that are connected with emotional disease and anxiety – matters that perpetuate psychical and mental pain and suffering are merely only the manifestation pressed by the harsh projections of someone’s ego. As such, they have gradually developed an innate gift to look straight into the heart of what others are trying to achieve by their negative projections, and skillfully challenging anything that is not in alignment with life’s greater meaning and purpose.

Many of us here are affected personally. Astrology is the language of Chiron. By refusing to culpably play along with the blame/shame stories and the pain-dramas that play out around us, we choose instead only to cast clear light upon those ideas or ‘energies’ necessary to better understand how to heal and amend our situation.

This is the premise behind doing our own ‘shadow work’ – the parts of ourselves that we may try to hide or deny. By transforming parts of our character that we’d like to change with compassion and understanding, we have made inroads to finding an effective means to balance these very diverse, but often hidden parts of ourselves. In many ways, we may have already been doing this without consciously knowing it, but as these next few months roll on we make a more overt effort to act more mindfully in this, mostly because our methods will be scrutinised and intensely challenged by the established sector of the community. Those willing to open up their souls in order to delve deeper and explore the vast possibilities of the true purpose of everything will encounter terrific trials, as they may have already noticed.

Of course there will be fear in the community. Many humans are still acting under the fixed, morbid auspices of ‘fate’, unwilling to step up to the truly liberating nature of free will and power to make conscious choices for ourselves. These go beyond feeling stuck in the cause & effect cycles of our conditioning, the wallowing in personal traumas and residual pain from past events. These extend to politics, law, religion, academia, public media – anything Sagittarius.

Skating along the crusty surface of ‘society’s’ fear-based survival mechanisms, those active proponents of judgement and fear – those who resonate strongly with the Saturn in Sadge will continue to try using tired-old ways to keep denouncing and vilifying whatever attempts are being made to bring new light into this planet. The advocate of the old guard – parents, ministers, governors, institutional heads will still try hard to besmirch and discredit any radical new ways as being ‘too strange’ and ‘uncomfortably close to the bone’, messing with their preferred version of ‘reality’.

Sadly this approach will only exacerbate the level of  discomfort, uneasiness and insecurity that many will feel when they come face to face with not following their true spiritual purpose. Anyway, we are not to fear or worry about those who are inextricably wrapped up into the dense fabric of a fast defunct structure here. With Saturn also in trine to Uranus this year, it gradually becomes nobody’s place to judge those who cannot see the great alternatives, but merely to observe how they choose to perpetuate their own suffering. Eventually everyone will come to see…

The world lacks empathy.
To quote John Lennon – “our big brains have gone straight to our heads”.

‘Time’ to reconnect with the heart.

As Venus opposes Uranus, we see that something about the old approach to relationships, making those difficult decision, listening to the real pains expressed among our most impossibly wounded souls has failed us miserably here. Traditional analysis and psychotherapy, for all its new techniques and innovations and all its glorified ‘over-accredited practitioners’ is still missing the mark here. On the main, established methods of healing fail to acknowledge that all humanity is now becoming endowed with universal access to amazing new waves of light, available to all those who dare to make leaps of faith into seeing everything rather as a holistically unified energy system, not just an isolated symptom of a mere part. This approach is not so easily quantifiable by ordinary ‘scientific’ means. True healing goes beyond the physical and ‘psychological’ realms of study. In our new understanding, it now extends into communicating and working with the angelic, mysterious realms of the spiritual and supernatural dimensions.

The greatest healers in the world are those who, in their time, were castigated and ridiculed as ‘hearing voices’, or ‘working with the devil’, or being somehow too ‘weird’ or ‘creepy’ in their approach and practices. Sure, there are many who somehow romanticise with the glory of proclaiming themselves as sacred ‘healers’, ‘gurus’ and ‘spiritual masters’. Especially lately. Seems like everyone has been donning the ‘shamanic’ cap somehow. Whilst many have, in essence, been dabbling close to being nothing more than self-promoting tricksters and charlatans, they are in some ways the lower vibrational versions of what they  aspire to become. Being a shaman in the western world is unfortunately not a university-class career option. Many have had to stumble their way through it, often through exploring the many facets of their own pain, and the pain-bodies around them (wounded friends, family, lovers, unsuspecting victims).

Meanwhile, a new breed of practitioners is emerging through the ranks now. These are your former ‘misfits’ and your life-lost ‘jack-of-trades’ (‘Chironians’ – new word), who have themselves suffered so much and wrestled somberly with their own flaky egos, their self-medications and sabotaging ways, who are now (thanks to the disciplining forces of Saturn) beginning to rise above the confusion and cheap chicanery of their own immature mind. These are the blessed souls who have done much work upon themselves, wrestled with their demons, earnestly conquered their own infantile addictions and their noxious predilections for pain and escapisms by experimenting through use of  the strangest rituals. They now step up (as mature adults) to do something that truly is responsible to this planet – not just for themselves or for others, but in service to the divine order of nature herself.

As Saturn’s third square to Chiron occurs (Nov 1), the weary, bruised and withered spirit traveller (like you and me) can choose to mindfully disengage, to free ourselves from any of the old, pedestrian entanglements with paternity, those that seek only to inhibit and obstruct our personal growth. We can choose to sit out this circular, never-ending square-dance with our own (and others’) pain-bodies.

This gruelling process is happening large, and though it may seem like a tedious, arduous effort, fraught with many jagged barbs and lame (but ever more futile) attempts by structured society to admonish and denigrate anyone willing to step outside the square. We might just come to see that any attacks against those mavericks and renegades is contradictory to our pursuit to gain a deeper understanding of the higher methods healing our whole, rather than the parts that express the most pain.

It comes back to connecting to the angelic realms and ascended masters. Our own person winged messengers that connect us to Spirit. By trusting more in our interrelation to beings beyond this physical plane, welcoming their heavenly assistance we learn to usher in these new cosmic light-rays, raise our consciousness, and develop a clearer perception of the kinds of ridiculous blockages that people place in front of themselves for the purpose of retarding their spiritual growth. It is this awareness itself that brings us closer to a deeper understanding of why people do this; why people insist on sabotaging the manifestation of the collective dream of our fair planet.

Let us now enter fearlessly into the stillness and silence of pure observation. Let’s walk intrepidly into that holy place of balance and neutrality, where in our own centredness and clarity we can make contact with the higher beings, ascended masters and other spirit guides. Let us know too, and with much certainty, how not to play into the negativity and drama that others will use to scoff at you for taking an unorthodox approach. Let’s become adept at avoiding the bitter ‘karma’ of any boxed-in situation – a condition posed only when we doubt our capacity to channel direct access to the divine lights.

It is not enough to see the pure, unfiltered light. One must proceed to work with it by being the very essence of that light. Over this next year this magical transit dares us to become the light-bearers for others.

It is a challenging journey for now. Mostly because much of what we see and choose to work with – as bright and clear as it may seem to us – currently defies  any traditional job description. Much of the language necessary to express our sacred mission to work with the light is not yet furnished with adequate enough words to describe what we are doing. Yet, at its core, an awareness of the truth, in all its iridescent glow, and all its wonderful new frequencies and portals into higher dimensions is everyday proof that every problem posed is merely an opportunity to further our spiritual evolution. Unless we find profound new ways to articulate and convey this work to society, the same problems or permutations of these are likely to keep recurring.

Humanity is developing a whole new level of therapy – one that is largely energetic, and speaks more to the ‘psyche’ (spirit) than the ‘mind’. In the most holistic sense, we, as ‘light-humans’ are brazenly opening up our heart-centers. As we employ alternative new ways to generate the power necessary to therapeutically transform age-old patterns of toxic psychic wounding, we lay the foundation that will eventually expedite the process of spiritual evolution for the entire planet.

For now, it’s easy. We just need to be strong enough to filter out the crap the rolls out in front of us, in real time. True transformation, true alchemy, true healing can only occur when we can help others to experience the clarity and the simplicity of life.

Start with your own little radius of light. Practice on your own luminous egg.
