The Cardinal T-Square of 2010 – An Update

Let’s take an accounting of how the cardinal T-square of 2010 has played out so far.  The biggest punch of this aspect, from late July into mid-August, is over because Mars is no longer part of the mix.  We still have Pluto squaring Uranus-Jupiter opposing Saturn.  Saturn, though, is beginning to move out of aspect now.

In my posting of July 7th,  I suggested that possible manifestations could be:

The Cardinal T-Square of 2010

More economical turmoil – we are still seeing this, but it’s a “more of the same”  kind of situation that we’ve been experiencing – nothing really new here, except that people are getting more exasperated. Some of us are definitely re-defining our financial ‘identities’ as well as our material attachments.  By the way, the financial meltdown began as Pluto entered the sign of Capricorn.

Natural disasters, such as more powerful earthquakes – there has been more earthquake activity during this period, though no very large quakes, except for the one in New Zealand earlier this month.  There was also the unprecedented flooding in Pakistan and reports of volcanic activity in Indonesia and Columbia.

One thing, however, that popped out at me that I hadn’t considered was the overturning of Prop 8 in California. This fits right into this T-Square. Quoting from my previous blog,   This T-square is in Cardinal signs, which include Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn suggesting an identity crisis of some sort. Whatever happens you can be sure that how we identify ourselves within the structure of society is going to be challenged.”

Every aspect of this T-Square was highlighted here:

Libra’s symbol is the scales representing balance and justice.  Libra squares Capricorn (where Pluto is residing right now) upsetting the way we’ve been identifying ourselves within the structure of society.  Also, these aspects occurred at what astrologers call ‘the Aries point,’ which thrusts whatever is happening out into the open in a very public way.  I feel that the overturning of Proposition 8 is a perfect manifestation of the themes suggested by the energies of this powerful astrological aspect.

One thing is for sure – I don’t think there is anyone that these energies haven’t touched. We are all blazing new trails for ourselves these days. Some of these trails may be external – new jobs, no jobs, new perspectives on the job. Some of these trails are internal – how do I define myself? If our identity is wrapped up in the material – what we do and what we have – then these energies will be difficult to handle. However, there is a great opportunity here to recognize what is truly important, real, and indestructible; the love we have in our lives. If we let the love in our lives direct our thoughts and actions, then we will have nothing to fear.
