I started writing human design transits blog posts back in … oh probably about 2007.  I’d see the thread of change, and follow it for a few months, watching the synchronicity unfold with beauty and grace.  I could explain the concepts quite deeply during the period, coming back to them again and again.

These days it’s almost impossible to write anything coherent.  The complexity of what is happening is beyond explanation in one post.  Some days I wish I had time to write a book!

Today is one of those days.

Mercury and Uranus

Human Design transit chartFirst, Mercury is in the Gate of Innocence (25) in the Ji Centre (heart) with Uranus.  This gate encompasses the Aries Point which Astrologer Eric Francis describes as “the personal meeting the political”.  In other words, shift happens at all levels simultaneously.

Mercury / Uranus transits bring quick and highly intuitive thinking, sudden and often unexpected events, and an increase in consciousness of where we’ve lost our mind to groupthink.

Second, dwarf planet Ceres is in the Gate of Shock (51), which creates a channel with transiting Mercury and Uranus.  Ceres in the Gate of Shock is likely to have us revisiting traumatic childhood experiences in order to bring them to consciousness for healing.  The focus is likely to be on mothering – how we were mothered, our experiences as mothers, etc.

We may experience grief over loss, and anger at not having what we want.  Our physical hearts and heart chakra are both shifting from an egoic perspective to a bigger picture that encompasses both our soul geometry and global consciousness.  It’s time to get clear on what we want in our lives and take responsibility for creating it. Blaming others for whats wrong in our lives is so 2011!

Ceres represents where we can be neurotic due to lack of nurturing.  I’m doing a webinar on Ceres next month, so make sure you’re on the email list so you don’t miss out on that.

This is an extraordinary transit, as it brings up the collision between our family conditioning and our cultural conditioning.  This is the place where we project our childhood problems – you know, the one’s we’ve stuffed down inside us – onto our day to day lives and call it ‘reality’.

It’s an unstable energy, with Mercury the trickster and Uranus the rebel joining forces with our Ceres-ian tendency to get so stuck in our own stuff that we can’t see the forest for the trees.

There’s a strong energy for leaving the past behind, people, experiences, aspects of self.   There’s also potential to see where we’ve been tricking ourselves into a false view of our own lives.  (Aren’t we clever!)  Be sure to stay in your own ‘matrix’ of reality and not to allow others to hook into it, and certainly don’t get caught buying into theirs.

The channel itself is a fascinating one, since it bridges the ego self and the divine self.   It has the quality of ‘let thy will not mine be done’, regardless of how uncomfortable that may be.  And it may well be very uncomfortable as we step into our own bright potential.  Look particularly at your own anger, as this will be a focal point next week.  Good to get an early start on it!   Resistance is likely to be futile.

Mercury moves from the Gate of Innocence on 6th March at 10.43am UT.  Ceres moves from the Gate of Shock on 17th March at 20.46 UT.

Saturn and Jupiter

Saturn and Uranus can be the best of productive friendships.  Used incorrectly they can create hell on earth.  At the moment Saturn is in a game changing channel with Jupiter, and this expansion of the Saturnian energy is putting a turbo boost on the Uranus transit.

The simple underlying issue here is – what sort of society do we want?  It’s not about relying on authority figures, be they governments, schools, doctors, bosses, parents.  We are responsible for our own lives and the society we live in.  We are creating it each and every day by the way we behave, the way we relate.

The watershed

The Sun and Earth are in the watershed gates – Gates 63 and 64 from today till 7th March 3.30am UT.  The last two hexagrams of the I Ching, they represent the end and the beginning.  Order turns to disorder, and back to order again faster than you can blink.   Disorder doesn’t mean you are doing it wrong, just that this is new territory and we are still finding our way.  Move carefully, be sure of your footing.

One major theme I haven’t mentioned yet – becoming aware of what you as an individual need in order to feel cared for and nourished.   We all need our own individual recipe when it comes to being nurtured.

I’ll leave you with a quote from Hilary Barret’s I Ching

Feminine energy can be at home in such an open-ended uncertain state; masculine strength, that acts to achieve and complete things, will be exhausted by it.
