Unlike most articles regarding this amazing conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn, this is not an article about astrology. As a matter of fact, I can say that astrology is not really my wheel house. I do enjoy using the symbolism that is related to certain planets and their connections to different aspects of the inner process and for reading tarot, but I would never call myself an expert! I just take what I am given in the literature I’m drawn to or the channeled information I receive from within. I do believe that these transits and symbols can help us to see where the incoming energies are meant to be focused or integrated, but that they are exactly that — symbols. My personal belief is that we are the creators of our reality and if that is so, then there are no answers that truly come from without. When we are triggered, it is because we aren’t taking the time to go within enough to notice the internal triggers, and so our subconscious mind creates one outside of us to grab our attention. This is why many of us are feeling this new, internal pressure — we are beginning to experience what we see as negative emotion that arises, seemingly, without reason. We have reached this time in our growth, where we no longer require the outside triggers. This is because we are stepping into a new way of being. We are evolving on many levels, just as the Earth is. We are seeing this evolution play out, as we are the micro to the macro. As within, so without. We are experiencing this growth within us, and we are seeing it on a global scale, as well. Native cultures believe that the same stories unfold over and over again in neverending circles and that even though many of the stories change, the theme is the same. It allows us to see these same stories unfolding from different areas of consciousness and from different perspectives. This is the spiral of life. As we grow into higher perspectives, we will experience the same situations or storylines with different people and places involved so that we can see the change in our reactions and in the end game! This is why so many people end up getting chopped off at the knees over and over again by the same situations in life until a little light of confusion goes off. It then becomes louder and louder until it is an alarm of understanding that something must change! Ascension begins. New perspectives are gained and executed. New thought processes begin to hatch and create a new segment of life and it always happens right on time. It happens differently for everyone.
