Astrology of Now: The Space Between

Monday June 25th 2012

The Bath. Bonnard

When you’re trying to draw something right in front of you, the key to getting it right is often to look at the space between. When you start to look properly, you can see that space has a shape and vivacity all its own.

Look at the “negative space” in this painting by Bonnard.

This week we are in the space (or time) between the first exact formation of the Uranus-Pluto square and the Sun igniting that aspect. To add to the strange feeling of suspense both Venus and Saturn are stationing direct, which means standing still in the sky.

Saturday June 23: Jupiter (extravagance) squares Neptune (illusion)
3° Gemini-Pisces (one-off)

Sunday June 24: Uranus (crisis) squares Pluto (debt)
8° Aries-Capricorn (first of seven encounters between the two big planets)

Monday June 25: Saturn stations direct in Libra

Wednesday June 27: Venus stations direct in Gemini 
(within one degree sextile-inconjunct Uranus-Pluto)

Friday June 29: Sun forms a T-square with Uranus-Pluto (strike a light)

What is more the Moon will fill in a Grand Cross on this aspect for the middle part of this week as it travels through Libra. On June 27, it will be the first planet to hit the Uranus-Pluto square.

With an aspect as slow-moving as this Uranus-Pluto square, one might not expect to see quick results. However, with the Moon and the Sun move into aspect so quickly, this may be an exception. After all, the Egyptians found out who had won the election on the very day of the square, and Europe failed to resolve its debt crisis – again.

    Your mother first taught me about negative space. She was drawing the empty spaces in the crown of a jacaranda tree. Her subsequent sketch leaped off the page, and as I stared, I realized it was the negative space that gave it so much room to breathe.

    Everybody inhale… 🙂
