Grand Square of 2020
This Cardinal Square: Mars in Aries Square Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto Conjunction in Capricorn, will be experienced during the second half of 2020, specifically from July of 2020 through January of 2021.
Cardinal signs are about leadership, initiative, actions, and activities. People are being called and/or are answering calls (mostly through situations) to be leaders, take initiatives, and act, or to level-up where they're at in their lives. Cardinal energetics are oriented with: conscious awareness and presence amidst activities of daily living, ownership and implementation of our initiatives, and taking appropriate and necessary actions. We're learning about how to be leaders because complacency has become obsolete.
During this square transit, it's very important for each person to practice critical-thinking when processing information, however, not at the expense of being. Being human and practicing conscious actions are more important than thinking. The best scenario to cultivate for yourself, and for people around you, is to practice critical-thinking and conscious actions, in presence.
The Stellium in Capricorn is linked with transformations of beliefs, truths, values, and facts. The controlled use of power from the previous expired paradigm (known as the Age of Pisces) is being transformed in ways that are resulting in redistributions of wealth, health, and personal power, through focusing energy on what you have and what you want, in a space of optimism, gratitude, and presence. Mars square to the Stellium is where courage, leadership, initiative, and action come in. Again, Cardinal energetics are oriented with: conscious awareness and presence amidst activities of daily living, ownership and implementation of our initiatives, and taking appropriate and necessary actions to create, manifest, and cultivate, in creatively productive ways.
Energetics of the Mars-Jupiter square pose the question: Got self-control? If yes, use it. If not, cultivate it. Either way, tests shall continue. Seeking is unlikely to lead people towards happiness. Actually, people tend to seek at the expense of their happiness. The pursuit of happiness is distinct from being happy. Happiness is created from within, through Source; therefore, present-moment-awareness is key. If you're not in the Now, your mind is most likely in a state of unrest.
Energetics of the Mars-Saturn square might bring up feelings, memories, or experiences of inferiority. If these arise, it's a calling to work through them and heal yourself, without overcompensating. Self-love, self-care, and good health are some premises of leadership and presence. Be creative, and do your best with aligning aims and actions because the tendency is for these to feel at odds with each other during this transit. If you're experiencing blocks, these are signals that there's inner-work to be done.
Energetics of the Mars-Pluto square are very potent. Physical activities and movement are proactive ways to channel energy, so that emotional intensity and intensified actions can be reduced. Research or involvement with interesting projects are good channels for utilizing the mind. However, feeling eager to prove is a result of a lower vibration of the amplified Mars energy. There's nothing to prove; the truth shall be revealed. If your energy is jousting people around you, or if you're receiving jousts of energy from people, these are signals to redirect your chi and refocus your energy. Your physical body and your energy-body might be calling you to adjust your frequency and change your thoughts, which will alter your behavior, so that you can be better positioned to heal, grow, raise your vibration, and experience joy. If you are experiencing unpleasant emotions, thoughts, or behaviors, refocus your energy with self-kindness on what you want and the present-moment. When you feel, experience, and receive more pleasant emotions, thoughts, or behaviors, notate that life is a series of changes and challenges that are not set up to make you happy. So, be grateful and thoroughly enjoy your happy times. And remember, the power of your pointed focus of energy is your gift in feeling and experiencing the life you want.
People are awakening at their own paces. We're being called to acknowledge, accept, and continue developing our abilities, especially our perceptions and intuitions. It's all about utilizing and strengthening your superconscious mind, amidst present-moment awareness. Eliminating roadblocks to that by engaging in belief modification will thrust you forward in your health and wellness. Melioration is a process that will have it's ups and downs, so be advised that the path is not swift or linear; healing is messy, so be kind to yourself and get help when needed.
