Astrological Reflections at the Lammas Full Moon
The Riots and the August Grand Crosses
Mars was the trigger for the wild and undisciplined energy of youth to challenge the power of the status quo (Pluto) in highly explosive and destructive ways. Polarised with this was the opposition from Juno to Uranus and Ceres. Juno always attempts to bring situations back into Right Relationship. In opposition to Uranus (Heaven) and Ceres (Earth), Juno was first making us aware of just how far wrong collective relationships have gone, both in relation to any meaningful spiritual values, and in relation to any real respect for the Earth and our immediate environment. Juno carries the karmic patterns that we have inherited from our past, and the generations that have gone before us. Juno was revealing a deep rooted problem, whose roots extend back to previous generations. As always, Uranus requires us to employ a degree of objectivity and insight in order to see and address the real roots of the ‘problem’. Meanwhile, Mars opposing Pluto was manifesting the results of generations of lack of self-discipline and respect for authority; not the ‘authority’ of those ‘out there’ who are perceived to have power over us, such as the police and politicians, but the sense of true inner authority that can only come from genuine feelings of self-respect and personal empowerment.
The Grand Cross was further intensified when, a second Grand Cross formed on 5th - 6th August, with the Moon (in Scorpio) in opposition to Jupiter (in Taurus) and Sun conjunct Venus (in Leo) in opposition to Vesta (in Aquarius).
