Other Energies Affecting 2017 Planetary Aspects – Part II of II
Part II: Ripples Through Time
Just as the “Aquarian Age” energy is affecting current 2017 planetary aspects and their potential impacts on human affairs, as I pointed out in Part I: The Age of Aquarius, so too is the energy from the major, past, planetary aspects still affecting the present—namely the conjunctions.
A conjunction happens when two or more planets are within 8 degrees of each other, and of course our sky is broken up into a 360-degree circle. Think of the conjunctions as seed conversations that began between the two planets involved. As the planets continue to travel through the zodiac, they will make additional aspects to each other, but we always look back to the most recent conjunction that began the current conversation.
These were the 6 major conjunctions that will be relevant this year:
Jupiter was conjunct Saturn at 22° Taurus in 2000.
Jupiter was conjunct Uranus several times between 2010 & 2011 in the degrees of 27° Pisces, 28° Pisces, and 0° Aries.
Jupiter was conjunct Neptune several times in 2009 in the degrees of 24° and 26° Aquarius.
Jupiter was conjunct Pluto at 28° Sagittarius in 2007.
Saturn was conjunct Uranus several times from 27°, 28°, and 29° Sagittarius in 1988.
Uranus was conjunct Neptune several times at 18° and 19° Capricorn in 1993.
As you can see from the list above, there were many planetary aspects that occurred in the recent past, which are still affecting us today with their “ripples of energy.”
Depending on the degrees of the planets in your own birth chart, some of these seed conjunctions may or may not affect you on a personal level. Think back to what was happening in the world and in your life during these times and you can get a clue to the “ripples” that you may feel this year as these seed conjunctions are triggered. For example, the concept for the internet was conceived in 1988, which has greatly impacted the flow of information and commerce in our world.
All of them work together, not unlike instruments in a symphony to create chords or “The Music of the Spheres.”
