Earth-Water Grand Sextile…and A Little Yod, Too – Actions Opening Doors
Grand sextile configurations are potent, and this one at its most exact today, October 31st, 2013, may be the most potent that we’ve had since the ones that were part of the Star of David configuration earlier in the year. In Zodiac order of appearance, this October 2013 grand sextile involves:
- Mars in Virgo at 9° in sextile aspect to…
- North Node in Scorpio at 7° conjunct Sun in Scorpio at 8° conjunct Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio at 11° (a stellium) in sextile aspect to…
- Pluto in Capricorn at 9° in sextile aspect to…
- Chiron Retrograde in Pisces at 9°, which opposes Mars in Virgo(exact as of 10:29p PDT last night).
Mars in Virgo reveals a strong inclination to take actions with purpose. The North Node in Scorpio represents how we are all being guided to transform aspects of ourselves and our lives, if not to transform our lives entirely. The Sun in Scorpio represents Light exposing and revealing our deepest and darkest truths to us for us to face and deal with them. Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio is giving us an opportunity to go back over things and to think deeply before we speak. Pluto in Capricorn is clearing out and away the systems, standards, and structures that no longer define or serve us well. Chiron Retrograde in Pisces is giving us an opportunity to revisit our past in ways that help us heal our emotional-spiritual wounds so we can move forward.
Together, this earth-water grand sextile is a powerful opportunity for us to recognize how our practical actions to provide us with opportunities to make significant changes as result of recent realizations of Truth. By really taking the time to consider and weigh the options available to each and all of us at this time, we can choose to release certain beliefs and behaviors in order to heal ourselves of our past. This is a pretty big deal.
Yes, grand sextiles are usually in themselves positive configurations, so we need to recognize that even if the changes are major and may be painful to face, allowing them to occur will work out for the best in the long run. Yet we do need to consider the players involved – this is some strong energy that affects us both individually and collectively.
On the individual level, the energy of this October 2013 grand sextile is likely to open up some doors for you that you may have been waiting to have opened for a long time. The questions now at hand are the following:
- Will you walk through the doors that are opening for you?
- If you are hesitant to walk through, what do you need to heal and/or overcome in order to walk through them?
- Are you willing to seize the opportunity, even if it doesn’t look the way you envisioned, thought, or hoped it would?
- Are you really ready for your life to transform, possibly in a very deep and profound way?
On a collective level, there may be some major events that occur today, or this energy could simply plant the seeds for some major events in the near future. I look forward to finding out how this actually manifests for each and all of us.
One thing to keep in mind today – the grand sextile may be the biggest thing, but it’s not the only big thing happening.
There is also a yod configuration with Juno in Aquarius at 8°and Uranus Retrograde in Aries at 9° in sextile aspect at the base, making quincunx aspects to Mars in Virgo at 9°at the point. Yods are also known as “fingers of God”, revealing the results of certain behaviors or approaches by literally pointing us in a direction. The elements of the base don’t seem like they’d result in the point, yet that’s often how the Universe works – what we humans think makes sense usually doesn’t.
In this particular yod, Juno in Aquarius reveals our commitment to make a contribution to humanity, and Uranus Retrograde in Aries revealing our willingness to embrace our unique individual self-expressions. Together, these air and fire energies give us the foundation and motivation for purpose-driven actions through Mars in Virgo. Make no mistake – between the grand sextile and the yod, Mars is the key. The actions and activities that occur today (and really, from October 29th through the extremely powerful Total Eclipse New Moon on November 3rd through November 5th) have serious potential to bring about some of the big things that we’ve felt are coming but haven’t yet arrived. This could be the time of arrival…or at least the door it all actually begins to come through.
Of course, Uranus Retrograde in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn (exact tomorrow at 3:02a PDT), challenging us to step into our individual expressions by creating our definitions of success and achievement for ourselves. And Juno in Aquarius squares the North Node-Sun-Mercury Retrograde stellium in Scorpio, challenging us to make a commitment to contribute our unique abilities and talents to humanity even though we may not even know exactly how we are going to do that yet. It’s okay. Simply by acknowledging that you are being called to serve a greater purpose and accepting that call, you empower yourself to seek out exactly what that role is. In doing that, you have something that guides you, supports you, and gives you something to count on through this time of great change and uncertainty – you are given a path to walk or maybe even a trail to blaze, even if you aren’t sure exactly where it leads.
Please comment on this post or send me messages via e-mail, Facebook, G+, or Linked In as the power of these grand sextile and yod configurations plays out. I’d love to know how it affects your life. I also look forward to how it will affect my own personal journey, and our collective human journey as well.
Thanks for reading and sharing Signs and Numbers. Until next post…
