The Septile Circular: December 2020

My apologies dear readers. Would it suffice to say that transit Pluto has been kicking my arse? Let's get to the basics and get this posted for posterity, if nothing else.

December's septile weather set the stage for a transition out of 2020's holding Cataract Star pattern. Three-quarters of the Capricorn crew finally moved on their way into Aquarius and away from the Capricorn focal point of the star at roughly 26-27° of the sign (although Pluto is moving in to anchor until Uranus advances into his next 5 degrees of Taurus).

The aspect of the month is the 6th of 7 Uranus-Pluto biseptiles, exact on the 26th. This is augmented by a smaller blip of Jupiter swiftly moving out of his shadow range and nicking Neptune for a one-off waning septile along the way.

First to Jupiter, consider that in 2019 his travels through home sign of Sagittarius brought us the square to Neptune, while in the early days of 2020 his first Neptune sextile brought the advent of COVID-19. The friction of that square energy between the two Jupiter-disposited planets likely brought some kind of shooting star spark to your life: the septile on the 4th of the month may provide further nourishment and spiritual advancement to that spark as the cycle draws to a close.

To Uranus-Pluto, this mammoth aspect came within 1.5° orb on November 30th, perfected on December 26th, but will not fall out of orb until after the 7th and final perfection next April. An aspect like this is less about the perfection than about providing an energetic months-long backdrop to the sky weather, like a musical note held especially long.

But what becomes interesting about these greater aspects is how the closer planets make couplets of near-simultaneous aspects, interpreting the meaning in many keys down towards planet Earth on either side of the exact hit. Mercury sounds the first Uranus-Pluto couplet on the 3rd, echoing Jupiter-Neptune two days later. Venus then follows suit in a Uranus-Pluto fugue on the 17th, but then changes step: Jupiter has moved on too far ahead, so only Neptune feels her grace note on the 20th. The Sun and Mercury, moving to cazimi on the solstice, aspect Vesta on the 21st and 22nd. Venus drops a 7th harmonic beat a day later, confirming the solstice's Great Conjunction. I would be curious to see how Kythera fares as she closes her yearly cycle with the two in her next conjunctions, given she was on God Talk 2-Way Radio with them as they sealed their deal. 

Albeit, Juno may hold a trump card, being in the mix with Uranus-Pluto within 3 hours of their perfect aspect. Here, Juno formed a waning septile with Pluto: since late 2017 your depths have risen with a calling for you. How you've answered that call is your own business, but that cycle is in waning phases. Albeit, it's still a year off, but Juno will meet Pluto at 26♑42, two arc-minutes from Jupiter's position in septiling Neptune this month. It's also a degree off of Jupiter's station retrograde this year, just like the start of this Juno-Pluto cycle began at 17♑, the degree where Jupiter stationed direct this year. 

You've been coming to terms with a greater commitment to your own purpose, individuation and secret strengths, perhaps sparked or illuminated by the Jupiter-Neptune square. After a long Juno retrograde in Libra, meditating on the proper balance and appropriate partnership, Juno takes tentative steps in 2021 back to the realm of Jupiter's square. She's going over this ground - perhaps she's looking for her own inspiration, perhaps examining what was found by her husband, all in a quest for what will hold true and be worthy of commitment - and the higher reasons why. Biseptiles with Neptune will expand the inspiration, with hidden messages from dispositor-honey. Jupiter was locked in a struggle to grow structure this year, if not detonate it thanks to Pluto and squares from Mars. When Juno traverses his fall-shadow bounds, she will relive, but otherwise sail through to Pluto and then form her last septile to Neptune on the degree of the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction. 2021 quite simply will be about coming to terms with our changed world. How can you commit to bring your best forward, and let the failed detritus wash away in the wake of a vision of the new? The vision itself will take some wrestling: don't expect answers to come quick and easy, but earned. Juno will rejoin her husband in early Aries in 2023, and will re-meet individuating Uranus that spring as well.


Meanwhile, back in December... The lunar aspect cascades through the points of the Cataract Star, which have been with us since June or late May, continue for a little while longer. The first cascade started late on the 1st through the early hours of the 2nd, and then recommenced on the 5-6th, the 9th and 13th. And that's about when they stopped (!). Jupiter, Saturn and Pallas fell out of the pattern in preparation for the Great Conjunction on the 21st. Not to say there won't be lunar cascades in the future, but the principle behind them is that they hit points on a larger aspect pattern swiftly. We'll just have to see what patterns form next.


Finally, a last bit of business from my cocktail blog: an AstroPunch presentation made the rounds for last month's A.S.P. holiday party. Herein, the recipes! Many thanks to the Astrological Society of Princeton for letting me go a little cocktail-crazy! It was a fun shindig!
