So, to briefly elaborate on the "Defying Gravity" theme from yesterday, I want to bring in some discussion of astrological themes (again, being the "astrogeek" that I am ;-)). To do this, I'll be briefly discussing the archetypal significance of three planets: Saturn, Uranus, and Jupiter.
- Saturn represents responsibility, the establishment, the wise elder, "the way we do things", conservatism, fitting in
- Uranus represents the maverick, the individualist, the brilliant thinker, the mad scientist
- Jupiter represents faith, expansion, teaching, social advancement, progress, and doing things in a big way
The reason why this fascinates me is that that these same themes are currently being played out in my life, in yours, and in society at large. Why? Because, right now, astrologically, we are experiencing oppositions in the sky between Saturn, on one hand, and Uranus + Jupiter, on the other.
I'll unravel more of this (part 3!) tomorrow. . .
