The Cardinal Conception

The intense series of astrological patterns in effect between late last year and 2015 represent the profound shifts occurring during this transformational period in human history. It is being called the “Cardinal Climax” by some astrologers because of the coming T-square alignment of slow-moving Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto in the early degrees of the cardinal signs, the starting points of the four seasons. The name “Cardinal Climax,” then, is inaccurate as a climax represents the peak of a cycle when, in fact, these transits mark its beginning.

A more appropriate name for these times is the “Cardinal Conception,” marking the birth of a new wave of consciousness awakening within us. Clearly, old institutions and ways of thinking are failing during the present opposition of revolutionary Uranus and structured Saturn. But don’t confuse this apparent end game with the essence of what is really happening now: we are making a choice about the future of humanity. We should stop looking in a rearview mirror trying to live by the rules of the past when the future is coming at us so fast.

The Cardinal Conception symbolizes the challenge to birth a new idea of who we are before it's too late. We humans are lost and need to reorient ourselves and create new mythologies that match these times. The technological changes of the past 200 years have radically altered our relationship with the world around us while our descriptions of who we are in it and what life means have not kept pace.

Waiting for change, resisting it or opting out of a participatory role in writing humanity’s story may well lead to a climactic crash of devastating proportions. Yet recognizing the potential of these times to awaken ourselves and take a pro-active role in defining the future is still our choice. We can choose to grow beyond the misty past and the alienated present to take the next step in human evolution...or give up that choice and let the winds of time blow us away.
