The Great Shift Challenge, Phase 1. The Plan.
Updated: Mar 5, 2020
The planetary activator of Phase 1 is Venus. On February 23, Venus squared (a challenging relationship) Jupiter. On February 28, Venus squared Pluto. Today Venus squares Saturn.
Venus is about values – what we want to receive. In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, she is Isis. First, we explored what we want to receive – what we value. Next, we looked what we are receiving and acknowledged what needs to change. Now, we will begin to envision what must happen in order to move to the next version of ourselves. We will create a Plan.
Saturn is an important player in The Great Shift. Every sign is said to be “ruled” by a planet. Saturn rules Capricorn. The Old King is very comfortable at creating and maintaining structure. The problem is that once he has created something, he becomes invested in it. He has difficulty letting go.
Saturn also sheds light on what needs our attention. If you are familiar with the Tarot, Saturn is much like The Hermit card which is often portrayed as an old man holding a lamp, casting light onto a dark path. Saturn/Sobek shows us what needs to be seen.
It takes time to create a Plan. Over the next two weeks, answer the following questions: what do you want? what is working? what isn’t working? what needs to happen? and where (who) is your support? Write it down; make it conscious. Keep it simple – refine it down to one issue that you are working with. Take your time. Saturn/Sobek is not about action but rather about recognizing what is in plain sight. Sometimes we don’t want to see it – the thought of what needs to change is too painful or scary. And, if we are willing to look, Saturn/Sobek will shine light on what needs to be done. Now is the time to look.
