The Mutable Cross: Considering The Maker and The Made

Follow the lead of your symptoms, for there’s usually a myth in the mess, and a mess is an expression of soul.

James Hillman

As I write this, a mutable grand cross is drumming in our sky. Today, every mutable sign in the zodiac is represented in the heavens. All the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) have to do with information, movement, synthesis, knowledge, flexibility, the “lower” mind, the “higher” mind, avoidance, service, adaptability, and so on, with each sign carrying their particular framework of meaning.

Today’s astrology features a Moon in Virgo with a mammoth (_) focus on Gemini and Neptune.

Gemini is the cerebral sign of facts, logical discussion, and the conscious mind. The sign is currently hosting three planets including Mercury appearing to move retrograde in the sky. The mind flits back and forth between a pallete of options. It is a favorable time to be in communication with with our most soulful selves, as some are feeling called to become consciously aware of our divine mission for being on earth, beyond the mundane trivialities of day to day life. Once that awareness is achieved, the task is to bring that awareness of central purpose into the execution of each mundane action of day to day life. My counsel is that if you happen to chance upon this awareness, take special care to catch it because it could be a fleeting peripheral premonition, gone as fast as it came.

Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Neptune, and Pisces are the hodge-podge images of the small maker, the big maker, the tools to make, the utter incomprehensibility of what is being made, and devotion to the process of making — the significance of which might have to be accepted on faith.

In warm love,
