Be Yourself and the Astrological Implications
by Rick DiClemente
What a glib, over-rated phrase. “The secret is to be yourself…” Socrates, “Of thine own self be true…” We hear this all the time, but are we really sure what this means? Us free-footing Americans think, we’re so free, “of course I’m being myself, who isn’t?”
The reason I am bringing this up now is that it couldn’t be more important than now.
So, how did we get here? You’ll recall, for the past 2-3 years, we’ve been experiencing a tough Uranus in Aries square to Pluto in Capricorn. Picture Pluto on home plate and Uranus at first base; that’s the right angle; the square. Well, if that isn’t heavy enough, now, Jupiter has taken up a long rental of 2nd base! Now, we have Jupiter opposite Pluto, both making a right angle (T-square) to Uranus in Aries. As if Uranus needed any help. This greatly exaggerates the oomph of Uranus which is sooooo strongly placed in the first sign of the zodiac. This means: “Do it!”, says Uranus; – and Jupiter says, “Well, hell yes!”
I won’t even mention the fact that now (because it gets so complicated) Mars is going backwards in Libra on 3rd base! That makes, you got it, a big cross with the 4 most volatile planets that there are on the compass points (for months to come).
All of this emphasis is really pushing the individual seed of all of us from within. That pertains to individuals and all groups; i.e., all entities.
