Temple Astrolog: Truths come to the surface

by Karin Ugander

Right now several planets and asteroids team up with each other. That can be fun. Much like in school when you have working groups trying to solve things together using each other’s talents and gifts. However, if you don´t understand each other or cannot agree, there may be tension and turbulence in that little group. So let´s take a look and see who is playing with whom and see how we can use that energy in a good way in our lives at the moment. 

Overwhelmed by others 

The Sun (me, talent ) is teaming up with Saturn (restriction, blockages) in the sign of Aquarius (collective, social media). When Saturn and the Sun meet each other self-criticism can be very intense. It is difficult to see your own talent and how you may contribute to anything.  When this happens in Aquarius you can be overwhelmed on social media by what everyone else is doing and how great they seem to be. You may also find it difficult to find your role, or question your role within a group or organization. The Sun/Saturn is also making a challenging aspect to Uranus (turbulence) in the sign of Taurus (body). This can make the anxiety or low self-confidence be felt very physical. It can also make you super critical about your own body and there is a danger of self-harming behavior. 

Being aggressive towards others

People who are insecure about themselves, what they are doing and who they are may have a need to tell everyone about their greatness. They can be loud and very fast at pointing fingers towards other people’s practices, belief systems and way of life. But that is actually a way of convincing themselves that they are good enough.

Someone who knows who they are and what they can do, does not need that confirmation from others. The Magick speaks for itself. Their sense of balance and belonging needs not to be questioned. They walk with integrity and power. This is one of the gifts of the Sun/Saturn conjunction when it is transformed to a higher vibration. 

My advice in this transit is to do your thing!  Let go of what others are doing, and focus on yourself instead. If you or someone close to you is sensitive, why not take a break from social media for a few days? Be creative, write, paint, read. This energy can be used for manifesting art and unique (Uranus) things. If you have sensitive, and especially young people around you, they may need extra support through this transit. 

The Sun and Saturn travels together from the 25th of January until the 14th of February

Uranus and the Sun let go of each other on the 6th of Feb. 

The Saturn /Uranus square ended on the 5th of February. 

Tell the truth with compassion

Right now we have Mercury (communication, friends, siblings) right next to Pluto (death, transformation, the underworld) in the sign of Capricorn (strict, rigorous). When Mercury joins with Pluto it creates a laser beam mind, a sharp intellect that can tell the truth like no one else. A wonderful combination to have for a scientist, researcher and investigator. The challenge is that if one is not aware, the words and truths can create harm, even if not intended. Like Sheldon in the TV-series “The Big Bang Theory”. He is right about many things when looking at them from a logical perspective. But when it comes to human relationships and how to say these truths, well that´s just not his talent!

With this transit we get a chance to “cut through” many layers and see things from a different, more clear perspective. It can be truths that are very old (Capricorn) that we now can update to where we are today. When we do this, it can be a good idea to think before we speak, digest our ideas before we deliver them and perhaps be sensitive to the timing of when and where we deliver our new insights. When we have done so, we also need to give the recipients some time to digest the information.

Coming home to your parents family dinner saying: “Mom, I just had the weirdest dream. I dreamt that Grandma had an affair with another man before you were born. You don´t happen to know anything about that?” May not be the best idea. 

Perhaps you are absolutely right, perhaps you are not. You Mother may know or she doesn’t. She could even have another father than she knows of. The thing is, that if your mother in this example becomes frightened and shocked she may shut down emotionally and that will be the end of the discussion. But if you are gentle and respectful she may be brave enough to start investigating herself!

Pluto and Mercury makes a good aspect to Ceres (mother, nurturing) and the north node in Taurus. If we are gentle and don´t rush things (taurus needs time, they process slowly) a whole new path may open up (north node) for us and others involved. Relationships may unfold in a way of beauty and the feeling of support.

If you make a discovery at work about shady things going on, take it easy before you rush into your boss office with what you have found. Set an appointment, have a planned meeting. 

Be clever(Mercury/Pluto).

If you suspect that your adult child is having problems, perhaps thinking about a separation, bring it up in private. Make the time and prepare the space. 

 Another way of saying this is: If you have a truth or insight to deliver or share, be respectful and don´t make people lose face. 

Mercury and Pluto is together until the 19th of February.

Ceres is in good aspect to Mercury until the 23rd of February.

Ceres is in good aspect to Pluto until the 28th of February.

Hidden secrets brought up into the light

Lillith Black Moon has a way of bringing dark and hidden things into the light. Sometimes these things are hidden talents and gifts that we do not know or understand that we have. Other times it is the things that we wished would be kept hidden. Now we have Lillith Black Moon in Gemini (communication, networks of friends). 

The police breaking the “EncroChat” encoded network used by criminal networks all over Europe, leading to hundreds of arrests, is a sign of Lillith Black Moon in Gemini. Working for justice she pushes things to the surface. Now we have Lillith Black moon in a challenging aspect Neptune in Pisces. This makes me believe that we will see even more and deeper (Pisces) secrets surface. 

Pisces rules the 12th house. This is traditionally the house of hidden enemies, jails, hospitals. This is the place where you lock someone or something in and throw away the key. And now along comes Lillith Black Moon talking (Gemini) in a way that no one thought they would dare to. This could mean that no one is safe, even if you are a President, Minister, a member of a Royal Family or the like. The truth is on its way!

Lillith Black Moon begun her journey in Gemini at the end of July 2021 and will move on into the sign of Cancer at the end of April 2022.

Lillith Black Moon is in aspect to Neptune until the beginning of April.

You can´t avoid change

Uranus (change, revolution, need for freedom) is making many aspects right now. To Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Vesta. He is a busy guy! 

Pluto (death, transformation, change) is also very busy at the moment. He is making good aspects to Pallas Athena, Juno, Ceres and the Nodes. The winds of change are blowing whether we like it or not. Putting your heels down and pretending that things are not happening is not a good strategy at the moment. My advice is to deal with things when they come. Take one day at a time, but don´t be afraid to make the decisions that you need to keep moving forward. This is a passage when you don´t want to fall behind. 

Summary: When I do a numerology and astrology reading for a client I can read what I call the “Weather Report”. I can predict if it will rain or not. But I cannot tell if my client is going to cry in the rain because he or she is getting wet? Or, if my client is going to get some buckets from the shelter and collect rainwater for his/her tomatoes later in the summer?

We are in a position when things are changing, secrets are being revealed both on a personal and a global plane. The world and the people are not in the same position today as they were only a moment ago and we have no idea exactly what tomorrow is going to look like.

I don´t know what kind of plans you have, but I´m going to get some buckets and collect some water.
