I hope you are enjoying today’s Mars sextile Jupiter. Mars is also quintile Neptune and Jupiter is quintile Pluto, so today we might be inspired to make some big changes in our lives.
Pluto is also square Haumea, the goddess of rebirth, and in a wider trine with Sedna, the goddess of transcendence. So the changes we make could challenge us to align more with the oneness that we sense in our hearts and to allow the 'letting go of the old' that both these goddesses require.
Sedna is currently stationary at 29 degrees 54 minutes of Taurus, and she will retrograde back just over a degree by early February and then make her first ingress into Gemini in June next year.
So the next five months of retrograde Sedna is a time of retracing our steps on our Soul's Path of Destiny, of redoing work where necessary, and also a time of following through on the soul-growth steps we've already set up for ourselves.
Check your natal Sedna house position for the 'heritage of karma' your soul has chosen to work with in this life, and the transiting house for the sort of terrain your path is going through now.
Haumea Dives Into Scorpio
Haumea meanwhile is moving direct at 28 degrees 28 minutes of Libra and she will barrel into Scorpio for the first time in early November this year. She had her stationary retrograde moment on the cusp of Scorpio at 29 degrees 58 minutes ofLibra in January this year, as Putin was assembling his forces for the attack onUkraine.
Other dwarf planet astrologers link Haumea with disaster, but I don't agree with this interpretation. Haumea talks about the-new which is coming into being, and the-new needs space, which means some of the-old must disappear. And this process of retiring the old and birthing the new can either happen gracefully, or, if we hold onto the old - which we normally do - it can happen under pressure and through crisis.
Those of us born in the 50's also have Haumea conjunct Pluto natally, and as a result we've been reading 'rebirth' into Pluto all our lives, and now we are sometimes reading 'disaster' into Haumea.
Haumea and Pluto are dancing in a square through these years, and they have been within a 2 degree orb since late February, so the war is more the expression of this aspect. And Haumea for her part is talking about the new cultural renaissance which is occurring in Ukraine - and inspiring the world - as the people and government rise to the Plutonian challenge and grow out of theirSoviet past.
Haumea is a goddess of the Hawaiian people, with their volcanic islands, so she is both an earth goddess and a fire goddess. And with this Scorpio ingress the emotional water element will nurture her earth-goddess side, but her fire-goddess nature will be steaming the place up at the same time. This hot house environment is likely to stimulate and potentially radicalise the areas of our lives that she is touching through this transit.
UK Astrology Conference
I will be presenting a new talk on Haumea : Deepening our Connection to Source at the online UK Astrology Conference on Sunday 25th September. And if you just want to do one day at the conference, you can actually catch two DwarfPlanet talks that day, as Sue Kientz will also be talking on Eris. More info below.
And because the first batch of scholarships on Haumea 101 starting next month were snapped up, I'm releasing another handful today. Grab this limited chance to on-board Haumea's rejuvenating energy in your life with a friendly international group of astrologers, at a never to be repeated price.
Join us if you can and thanks for your work on-boarding these new aspects of consciousness into your lives.
Love and laughter
