Colorado is ruled by Leo.
Forests are also ruled by Leo; evergreens by Pluto.
Lightning is Uranus. Fire is Mars.
Hot, dry conditions are ruled by Sun, Mars and Saturn.
Colorado – Leo stellium.
Uranus 19, Mars 13, Sun 9, Mercury 6 all focal planets of a T-square with Jupiter and Pluto (which oppose each other).
Tr. Uranus (lightning, unpredictable) at 8 Aries is trine the Leo stellium. Trine is thought of as an easy energy, but Uranus is wild and unpredictable. I recently had tr. Uranus trine to Mars and it was not pleasant. Uranus brings the unexpected every time. In my case – the Uranus / Mars situation did sort itself favorably.
Lightning has started fires in red-flag drought conditions, (tr. Uranus trine Uranus, Mars, Sun in Leo) many people are being evacuated and Colorado is suffering huge losses of both forests and homes. The grand cross you can see at the top of yesterday’s post is an aspect of extreme tension both personally and globally.
Venus stationing while conjunct Jupiter (prayers) in sextile to Colorado’s Leo stellium and the country is praying for rain. Cancer Sun is in the house of Moon (rain) coming to trine Chiron the healer / philosopher. Mercury just entered Leo and is applying to Colorado’s stellium starting with Mercury at 6 degrees. Mercury conjunct Mercury means communication is favored and it is also applying in trine to North Node of Destiny in Sagittarius, which Jupiter (prayer) rules.
Prayers, for Colorado please and thank you.
Wow, very combustible chart and now we see the power unleashed. Certainly prayer for everyone involved and for the land.
Pluto- evergreens, huh! I am aways learning from you.
I thought the same – and CO T-square is in fixed, emotionally desirous signs. I cry a river everytime I leave it: CO Jupes is conjunct my Neptuner and I have heard some fabulous music out there. I have loved CO since I was a kid…it just opens my heart right up.
The current Ura/Plu square in Cardinals – fire is obviously an active crisis. Pluto ruling evergreens makes sense though once you read it huh ? Oh, and I looked up maples and oaks – Jupiter ruled. Closest I could get to deciduous.
I’m praying with you…I keep thinking about all the critters – there is so much smoke in addition to fire.
