Podcast—2016 Forecast Overview
The following series of podcasts will examine the major Astrological factors influencing our lives and world during 2016. Today’s podcast, Part One, is a brief introduction to the Tri-Partite Hierarchy of Planetary forces of the major planets: Firstly, you have Pluto, Neptune and Uranus. Secondly, comes these three interrelating with Saturn. Thirdly, you have these four interrelating with Jupiter.
The First level in this Hierarchy is formed by Pluto, Neptune and Uranus which together comprise the Long-Wave or Substantial Spiritual Evolutionary forces for our planetary system. Each moving through the signs, and forming significant aspects to one another create the rhythmic pulses of Spiritual quickening for our journey.
These Lords of Spiritual Evolution combine to form three Planetary pairs of meaning: Neptune/Pluto forming the relationship of Unconditional Love versus Sacred Space or Love and Will. Uranus/Neptune forming the relationship between Individuality versus Community or Freer Minds and Unconditional Love. And, Uranus/Pluto forming the relationship between Individuality versus Sacred Space or Freer Minds and Will. These long-range evolutionary cycles range from about 500 to 130 years.
The Second level in this Hierarchy combines these outer three with the modulations formed by their respective intersections with the planet Saturn. Here you experience the interplay of the Evolutionary Forces of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto with the Structures or Objective Realms of Saturn, which will often unfold seemingly through “discords” or “clashes” of the transformational planets with the conserving/crystallizing forces of Saturn. These three are: Saturn/Uranus forming Order and Free Minds or Tradition versus Innovation. Saturn/Neptune forming Order and Dreams or Tradition versus Compassion. And, Saturn/Pluto forming Order and Will or Tradition versus Sacred Space. These mid-range crystallizing cycles range from about 45 to over 30 years.
The Third level in this Hierarchy combines these four with the modulations created by their respective intersections with the planet Jupiter. Here you experience the interplay of the Evolutionary and Crystallizing Forces with the Expansionary/Exploring Forces of Jupiter. These four pairs are: Jupiter/Saturn forming Truth and Order or Meaning and Manifestation. Jupiter/Uranus forming Truth and Freer Minds or Meaning and Liberation. Jupiter/Neptune forming Truth and Universal Love or Meaning and Oneness. And, Jupiter/Pluto forming Truth and Will or Meaning and Sacred Space. These shorter wave growth cycles range from 20 to 12 years.
Today’s podcast will begin the discussion of this tripartite hierarchy, as we begin to try and understand these gifts of the spirit for 2016. The major influences we will look at for this year will be: 1) The waning square of Saturn with Neptune, 2) the waning square of Jupiter with Saturn, and 3) the waning trine of Saturn with Uranus. But we will need to look at all these three (and more) within the context of the greater alignment that has and still defines our period. This fundamental elicitation of Spirit marks our time as the “end of an age” and the “dawn of a new age”, being heralded by Uranus in Aries forming a waxing square to Pluto in Capricorn.
We have not been witness to changes such as these for over 240 years, not since the 1760's to the 1770's, and before that from 1516 to 1532. Much like those individuals, cultures and countries in their time, we too now face the awesome responsibility of re-making ourselves and our precious world for the better, to love not hate, to unite not divide, and so build bridges of understanding, compassion and love for one and all.
