I hope you are enjoying today's double whammy of Mercury sextile Jupiter and Venus sextile Neptune. What a couple of beautiful transits! Jupiter is also closely trine Varuna, a planet which is probably new to most, but which I think of as the higher octave of Saturn.
When I was researching case studies for my book on Sedna, I discovered that every famous person that I studied had an aspect between their "soul's path of destiny" and Varuna, so notability is the key word that most comes most to mind for this new planet. This notability comes from a mastery in a particular area, the nature of which will be indicated by the house position.
That doesn't mean if you are not famous, that you are not using your Varuna, because we are all notable for something within our community, or our circle of friends, or our family. Most of us find something that sets us apart, so if I were to ask the people in your circle who to turn to for this particular thing, they'd point to you. Of course if we are alienated from others in society, the notability will be for that alienation.
The aspects to Varuna talk about how this mastery is both enabled and challenged to develop, and they can also talk about how we hold ourselves back from reaching it. Where Saturn rules by control, Varuna's mastery gives him a sovereignty which transcends the need to control, it just rules. Varuna is given the power willingly by others, but this sovereignty is usually hard won through diligent work over time.
Varuna is currently in Leo trining Jupiter in Aries, so your ability to expand your life is flowing with your mastery this week. Think of it as a super-Saturn trining Jupiter and we know how well the flow between structure and expansion works. So together with today's sextile between Jupiter and Mercury, this means that now is the time to speak up to expand your operations and claim your sovereignty.
This trine is also a perfect time for me to introduce Varuna 101, our next course here at the Uni, starting in early August. And for those who would like to develop their sovereignty, I have a limited number of Varuna scholarships to join our dedicated second year crew.
We are now through the extended Mercury Sedna conjunction that I mentioned in the last newsletter and I hope that sort-out of your ideas about your heritage and your spiritual destiny was valuable on the soul level. The scholarships on Sedna 101 have all been snapped up, but you can still get the Sedna earlybird deal on this popular course.
Love and laughter
