Big Changes Ahead
[00:03:30] Wendy Stacey: All right, Wendy, so
[00:03:31] Amanda Walsh: you said to me that this is the week of the century. Mm-hmm. , tell us why you’re saying that
[00:03:38] Wendy Stacey: Well, uh, we have of course the big event, which is Pluto going into the most interesting thing about this particular ingress of Pluto going into Aquarius is that it follows Jupiter. Saturn conjunction from December, 2020 at the same degree, zero degrees aqua.
[00:03:58] So this is very poignant in terms of human evolution, social change on every single level that you can possibly imagine. With that come, it also sort of follows from the spring equinox, which is the areas ingress that we look at for the year. It has a lot of other things going on.
[00:04:17] Satin, of course, Pisces recently, so all these things, contribute to that. But it’s a, it’s a really, really big historical week, very historical. Okay.
[00:04:31] Amanda Walsh: Can we unpack it a little bit? I know, yeah, sure. We’re talking about it a lot at the game changing transit event.
[00:04:37] Wendy Stacey: Yeah, we are. Yeah.
[00:04:38] Amanda Walsh: However, we won’t get to spend as much time with you personally on it, you know?
[00:04:43] We’ll, there’ll be a lot of different astrologers on the panel, so. Tell us what you mean. So it’s a historical moment. It’s huge for human evolution. It’s also touching the, a very critical point that we experienced in 2020. So how does this all come together in your perspective?
[00:05:01] Wendy Stacey: If I can sort of wrap it. We enter the, the Star Trek era. That is what we’re about to do. Oh, so Aquarius is, you know, whether you look. From an archetypal, , Uranus is a sky father, so everything’s sky from, from flying to technologies to space, and, you know, a lot of people get very scared about this, but it’s actually incredibly exciting.
[00:05:23] Particularly, . Very much about a place in the universe, and I know that sounds, very hairy fairy, but they, it’s, it really is about taking us to a level rather than, being. Earth focused. We are more everything’s going to be about the sky, the weather, birds space, flying, aerodynamic stuff, all that sort of thing.
[00:05:47] But that’s just one part of it. There’s also, Aquarius is very intellectual. It’s about the brain. So it’s very much about developing the brain, understanding the brain. It becomes very intellectual and life revolves around the brain rather than sort. More material things,
[00:06:03] so, and now Pluto is coming out of an earth sign. So it’s more about what we know, how we gonna keep up. It’s about artificial intelligence, and the thing is, it, it’s, Aquarius is very fast. We’re not used to that pace. We’ve, we’ve sort of been living in a world based on quite different foundations and it’s sort of slower now we’re about to pick up and it’s going to go quite quickly.
[00:06:27] So, um, yeah, quite radical. I mean, in terms of education, what kids learn at school, what we do for jobs, how we work, how we sleep, how we eat. All these things drastically. Wow. And quickly. And then it sounds dramatic. It sounds very dramatic, but actually it, it is that dramatic. I mean, the, you know, without getting into, you know, we, we have three nails a day based on, the working hours , from, from, you know, basically a hundred years ago or even further than that.
[00:07:00] On the Industrial Revolution, we eat three meals a day based on those working hours. That all changes now. We live in a world that’s, uh, and it’s gonna rapidly become different. People are gonna be able to work from anywhere in the world. And I think I touched on this last time, but Aquarius is an air sign.
[00:07:16] Um, and it’s going to be, it’s gonna move at a much faster rapid pace Yeah, it’s very exciting. I mean, and it sounds scary, but it’s not, you know, well, well, Wendy, I think,
The Shadow Side of Aquarius
[00:07:28] Amanda Walsh: I think the part that feels somewhat scary and, and just, and I’m also like, Reporting from our community. Things I hear and, and even things that I’ve experienced myself.
[00:07:39] First of all, it feels like we’re going fast already, so it’s kind of like, wait, what? We’re gonna go faster. It’s gonna be busier, it’s gonna be faster. How is that even possible? That’s one thing. The second thing is there. . I think there’s a fear that with all this intellectual sort of tech and progress and that the heart will be left, you know, that, that, that there, it will no longer be, uh, about heart connection.
[00:08:06] Especially with things like AI where you’re like, whoa, how does that all fit in? So, you know, how are you viewing those?
[00:08:13] Wendy Stacey: Well, you know, Aquarius is often about the moral compass. Mm-hmm. , but of course the shadow of that is also about the moral compass . So, um, you know, so you often get the, you know, so whenever a, a planet goes into a sign, like when Pluto, goes into Aquarius, you know, this week,
[00:08:30] so the shadow is Leo and Leo roll her. , it also rules children and it also rules royalty. So you can already see the, you know, the royalty sort of, um, you know, it, it’s not gonna be what it was, um, if at all. Um, so things like this, so the shadow of Aquarius is, um, what is of concern? So when Pluto went into Capricorn in 2008, one of the major concerns around the world that was discussed at the World Economic Forum in January, 2008 was shortages of.
[00:09:03] That is the opposite to Capricorn. The shadow is cancer and cancer is food. So this is the shadow you get and you can already see. Royalty is more in the press now than it ever has been, you know, from American all around the world. But it won’t be just a British royal family. It’ll be every or royal family that is not congruent.
[00:09:25] You know, Aquarius is about equality, democracy, so, so the unfortunate side of that is the heart. The heart has to work. Yeah. We have to work much harder to get that heart into it.
[00:09:37] And for child, you know, children. , Leo overall’s, Yeah. What do you see for the
[00:09:41] Amanda Walsh: children? I mean, so, okay, let me, let me make sure I’m understanding this. So we’re, Pluto is moving into Aquarius when you’re wanting to consider the shadow of a transit, and maybe we could do this for any transit you take, you take the opposite.
[00:09:57] Sign the opposite sign on that, uh, yeah. Uh, on that spectrum. Right? So the opposite of Aquarius is Leo. And so when you wanna look at the shadow, you consider like, how do you interpret that? The, the Leo shadow, like Leo in its shadow or just.
[00:10:14] Wendy Stacey: So for example, like, uh, Aquarius is about equality for all, whereas Leo is about royalty and leadership and there is no room for, you know, tall poppies in a society where everyone is equal.
[00:10:28] So therefore, You know, there’s, there’s a, there’s a, dumbing doubt or crumbling of those institutions where, um, where Leo speaks, where Leo is dominant. So things like royalty, you know, which is not Whatsoever, it’s not about equality. So that will, that will fall. It will fall and, and some all things Leo and, you know, , children are ruled by Leo in a, in a modern sense in terms of play.
[00:10:58] So we need to ensure that there is heart, which is ruled by Leo. , and that there is play. So, you know, that we, we need to make sure that’s installed, but that will be sort of frowned upon in, in the aquarium world, in the aquarium psyche of society that we are going to soon adopt. And, you can’t rewind time.
[00:11:18] So, um, It’s going to be a very interesting time. When we think of children today, we’re going to think of them quite differently. In 50 years time, we are already starting to do that. I mean, , without getting too, I mean, we have artificial uteruses now.
[00:11:34] You know, people don’t give birth anymore. So, you know, you can sort of see a, a, a, a trend already going that way. Which is, you know, without sounding like the Matrix, but it’s sort of a little bit, it has a little bit of that flavor I’m afraid. So we are going to, you know, have to work harder, if we want.
[00:11:55] To re to remain, to maintain, um, values. But I don’t that it, it won’t happen. I mean, it’s not happening now anyway. We think. See, the nuclear family that was designed again for work, the nuclear family and marriage, were actually, you know, constructs, social constructs to, to help a working environment under the earth element.
[00:12:16] These no longer. . We don’t need to be married for a start. We don’t need to have a man and a woman for a start. Things like that. We could have three genetically, three parents so we can already see the, the goalpost changing on, on the larger social scheme of Wow. Just try not to be too dramatic, but, but it is, it is a radical.
[00:12:41] Amanda Walsh: A very radical, radical, radical shift. You know, and I think we can all, there’s obviously ti so many precursors to this, there’s so many signs pointing in the direction. I, I even have had to find within myself. There’s, there’s, there’s the knee jerk. No, I don’t like that. You know, there’s the knee jerk like that, that feels icky or creepy or, or, you know, there’s something about it that feels sort of cold and like, um, isolating and
[00:13:14] Wendy Stacey: what, and aqua is.
[00:13:15] Is like that. And, and I always say to students, or I say, you know, in 95, I remember in 1995 having a discussion at work with people who worked in it, in the IT department, and I said, in 10 years time, children are going to have mobile phones. I worked in a company of 500 people when no one had mobile Um, and I said, in 10 years time, every school kid will. A mobile phone, and not only do people not believe that, but they said, I don’t want to live in a world like that. But now we do it, actually, it’s just not so bad because our own moral compasses shift too. Mm-hmm. You know, we, we actually change, we adapt.
[00:13:58] We’re incredibly beautiful, you know, I guess humans, but we, yeah. Yeah. It won’t be as, yeah.
[00:14:06] Amanda Walsh: Well, I’m thinking at the beginning of any huge change, the initial thought is ick. No, I don’t wanna live in a world like that. And then yet, as things change over time, I mean, I bet at the beginning of the, the internet, even cars, I mean like all the different things that have come that we just take for granted is like Of course.
[00:14:26] Yeah. And if you think about what we’re doing right now, I mean this is actually Yeah, utilizing tech. You’re in the uk, I’m in Hawaii. Yeah, and we’re connecting with people all over the globe with our hearts. I mean, I will say that I feel like we bring our heart into what we’re doing here every week, but, but if I’ve heard about this 20 years ago, it might sound creepy, especially someone said, you’re gonna be in this little box and like people are gonna tune into it to this thing.
[00:14:51] And you’re, yeah, the whole team of people you work with who you’ve never met in person, like, whoa, that would’ve been just even hard
[00:14:58] Wendy Stacey: to fat. It’s a bit like, you know, when Back To The Future came out and you know, they had those screens at the dinner table and they were talking to people, which was like, zoom.
[00:15:07] Yes. And you know, it was like, oh my gosh. People would say it’s never gonna happen in my lifetime. Well, you know, Of course it has. It has. And, and it’s only gonna get, uh, you know, even more so, even more so, and, you know, I mean, I think there’s a, concern of keeping up. But I think, you know, we will all bring value to whatever we know, whatever data, you know, we’ll be overloaded with so we need to apply filters, we need to have good filters, um, because it’s, yeah, going to ramp. Well, and keep our
[00:15:41] Amanda Walsh: values right. Yeah. I mean, I think as, as the technology changes, there’s a million new technologies that you could explore every single day, things that, that maybe you feel aligned with and things you don’t.
[00:15:52] I’ve already had that experience of like, wow, no matter what the tech changes are, no matter what the quote unquote progress is, as long as I’m stay true to my values.
[00:16:04] Wendy Stacey: Then
[00:16:05] Amanda Walsh: it doesn’t really matter what tool we’re using to facilitate whatever we’re doing.
[00:16:09] Wendy Stacey: It’s exactly, exactly. Which is a good thing because you know, one of the, the, you know, one of the co rulers diss of, of Pluto and Aquarius is Uranus and Taurus.
[00:16:20] Hmm. Which is gonna maintain that. And so the great thing about its ingress into Aquarius is that it’s going to be grounded. Mm-hmm. , there’s going to be some value la. Evidence-based, sort of concern for, you know, how we go forward. Second and Pisces not so much, but, but the Uranus and Taurus is, is, you know, going to make sure that the foundations are gonna be sick.
[00:16:46] Well, I think that’s what. Um, it’s quite beneficial about this particular ingress. Yeah. Yeah. Okay.
[00:16:52] Amanda Walsh: Well, I know we’ve spent a lot of time on this, but it’s that big of a deal. I’d, I’d love for us to go through the days this week so people can understand. Yeah. The exact timeline. Timeline. Before we do that, we’re gonna take a very quick break and when we come back, we’ll go through the days.

Day to Day Breakdown
[00:17:34] Amanda Walsh: Okay, Wendy, let’s break it down day by day. What can we expect today? And then walk
[00:17:40] Wendy Stacey: us through the rest of the. Okay, well it’s great. We start off on the 20th of March, because it’s a spring equinox. So it’s great and you know, a lot of people look at, the 20th of March, that spring equinox, where the sun is at zero degrees of Aries.
[00:17:55] So it’s basically the astrological New Year’s Day, along with a lot of Eastern religions as well. So it’s the start of the new year and it creates a theme for the new. Also for the next quarter until the summer solstice, when the sun goes zero degrees cancer. But this here is a very, very important day cuz it does lay out all the, themes for the next year and this particular day.
[00:18:20] Where the sun is at zero degrees of Aries, um, is a very interesting one because it’s just separated from a conjunction to Neptune. So it’s sort of coming out of the fog and then it’s meeting Mercury in Aries as well. So this is, A very fresh, a really nice and fresh new start. It’s a nice new year.
[00:18:43] It’s, uh, you know, sort of bursting with, you know, it’s like a blossoming if you like. It’s not alone in s with Mercury, of course, Chiron and Jupiter are there as well. So it’s a very strong fiery start to the year. Very sporty, it’s a very, innovative, very innovative, and anything that’s sort of new and fresh and, um, you know, it’s a, it’s a, it’s a great time.
[00:19:09] It’s a great time and, people feel. Renewed, I guess people wanna get up in the morning. You know, we’ve had the sort of, the sun through Pisces. It’s a little bit, you know, and it’s been a little bit more slower, but slud, although earlier in that day, of course the moon, is conjunct to satin. So, it starts off tough.
[00:19:32] And of course it is the first conjunction of the moon with Satin, since Satin went into Pisces, um, earlier in the month. So the moon there is the first one. So it’s a bit, it can be a bit melancholy if you like, but now from the 20th we have sort of a renewed sense.
[00:19:51] So people, you. , jumping outta beard, if you Um, yeah. Much nicer. And, and also to say that, you know, this particular week as well, all of the planets are in a bundle in the sky. So they’re, they’re very, um, focused, very concentrated. And the only planet that’s sort of, um, out on its own is Mars. Mars and Gemini.
[00:20:13] So that, and of course, that rules. Where there’s, were, you know, four planets, the Sun, mercury, Chiron, and Jupiter. So it’s quite strong. Do something new that day. Do something spontaneous, cuz yeah, it’s, it’s high energy.
[00:20:29] It’s really high energy. It’s cool. And all the planets are direct as well, of course. And then on the 21st, well, um, that’s, um, depending on what continent you’re on, of course, but, um, looking at universal time.
[00:20:43] So Greenwich meantime, we have the New Moon, um, and Aries. So, the New Moon, of course that adds, uh, All of, what had gone on before. So now you have the moon, the sun, mercury, Chiron, and Jupiter in Aries. So again, really high energy. So rung, it’s a great day to go for a rung again, that Mars is out on its own.
[00:21:11] And also that that Sun moon, um, new Moon actually makes a six style two Pluto, which. Just two minutes away from moving into Aquarius. So it’s a nice alignment with the Sun moon, that new moon, um, introducing Pluto into Aquarius. So that particular day, it’s a good time to put things into fruition that you just couldn’t get started.
[00:21:37] It’s a really good time for, you know, often what stops us doing things is actually getting started. And the, the, the 20th and 21st are fabulous days to do that. They are just bound with, you know, new energy. , um, high energy innovation. So, you know, I would, um, highly suggest doing, something you’ve never done . Before either,
[00:22:00] Also as well, you have the, The nodes, conjunct to Venus as well. You know, make contact with someone you haven’t seen for a while or, you know, if you do find a, someone that you haven’t seen, or even a stranger it’s sort of like meeting someone.
[00:22:18] Sort of has a fatalistic quality about it or a soul searching quality It’s, it’s very pleasant. So, um, that’s quite nice as well. And then on the 22nd, you have, um, the moon is separated from the sun, but it’s still very, very high energy. But the difference here is moon, the day of the 22nd, the moon meets Jupiter.
[00:22:41] So things really ramp. Really ramp up, but so you’re going from a run to high jumping. , it really is a great time to put things in I can’t say that enough. It’s, you know, anything you wanna start, start then, so those three days, you know, the 20th, 21st, 22nd, high energy, you know, very, um, high, high powered days, very physical.
[00:23:07] you may find you don’t sleep very well there. These are gonna be days, there’s gonna be hot weather somewhere. It’s gonna be very hot. Areas is hot. Miles is out on its own. So, you know, the heat, you, you, you know, you’ll feel hot even, you know, perhaps in colder temperatures. Um, it’ll be a bit warmer than it normally is, usually people can’t sleep during this because the head is, you know, thinking about things, write them down all those planets and Aries is ruled by Mars and Gemini.
[00:23:36] And Gemini is journaling. Diary, putting it on the book. So do try and journal things even if they don’t make sense. They will do, they will do. So on the 23rd we have, the moon coming out, separating from, its conjunction to Jupiter. So on the 24th it moves into Taurus and then we have a quite different energy.
[00:24:01] And when it moves into Taurus, it’ll make it six style to Saturn. Pisces. So it’ll be much. Energy, it will be squared to Pluto. So there’ll be some, hurdles to jump over. That’s exactly what it will feel like. It’s a good time to actually be a little bit more creative during this time. So this is from the 24th Universal time.
[00:24:27] For the next two and a half days, the moon’s gonna be in Taurus, and it’s not alone there, it’s there with Venus and U. So it’s a much slower time. Things are gonna slow down. It’s gonna be more about, you know, whereas previously with an eeries, you may not have eaten as much or thought about food. Now, moons and tourists, food, wine, whatever.
[00:24:49] um, you know, floats your boat. It’s Moon and Taurus is lovely. It’s on its way to make Venus. Um, it’s a really nice time to, well, sleep is good. Food is good. It’s also a great time. Um, you know, use your hands, time to garden. It’s that time of year in the Northern Hemisphere to, um, you know, get your, hands in the garden, that sort of thing.
[00:25:13] It’s a. Uh, sort of healing time for, in that respect. But making things as well. For the 25th, we. We have the moon come to join, Uranus, which, is a, brings a little bit of an electric. , um, vibe to it. Even though it’s still in Taurus and it’s still quite slow, it has it sort of, it’s sort of underlined by, um, a little bit of crazy. So being inventive, doing something, you know, all those things are just, you know, being, cooking or, um, you know, being creative.
[00:25:50] Do something a bit more inventive, a little bit more out of the box. Um, Yeah. It’s with all those planets and tourists, the markets will be a little bit crazy as well. Still again, Mars is out on its own, so you’ve still got that.
[00:26:07] Um, Mars and Gemini is like a buzz. It’s a constant buzz. So even though you’ve got these planets and Taurus and you’ve got, still got the Sun, mercury, Chiron, Jupiter, and Aries, there’s sort of like a real hum on the 25th. You’ve got Moon Uranus and you’ve got Mars and Gemini and you’ve got still that stallion and Aries.
[00:26:29] So you’ve still got quite contradictory energies happening. One is quite crazy and the other is soft. So, so you’ve got these contradictory energies.
[00:26:40] You’ve got this sort of really strong Aries, you know, very rah rah and a strong Mars and Gemini, but all the Venus, Uranus, moon in Taurus is very yin. It’s, it’s also very sens. You know, it’s a, it’s a great time to pamper oneself. That’s what Taurus is really, you know, it’s really good to do that.
[00:27:01] Well, you know, when I say pamper, it’s also just making yourself feel very comfortable. It’s important that you are really comfortable in this sort of, Um, space on this particular day because the, the moon and Uranus can be quite unsettling, as can Mars and Gemini. It’s important to say too that Mars is at the last degree of Gemini, so that hum is getting quite loud.
[00:27:25] There’s, there’s something that’s, you know, eccentric with that Moon, Uranus, Mars, and Gemini. Something quite eccentric about that. They’re, um, also in a 45 degree angle, actually, the moon, Uranus 45 to Mars. You know, it’s, it’s a bit of. Heavy metal. I could, that’s what I, you know, it’s sort of, there’s something about that.
[00:27:45] It’s a bit head banging, but in a, in a nice way. In a great way. Um, and so it’s sort. Going with the flow, but just making sure you feel comfortable. Um, and that’s, yeah, that’s pretty much the 25th. And then on the 26th, the moon is nearing the end of, um, Taurus. It’s coming out of Taurus, making its way into Gemini.
[00:28:11] But what is, really interesting about that 26th is that Mars has now entered So it’s come out of that last degree of Gemini and it’s now into cancer. So all those planets and Aries Sung Mercury, Chiron, Jupiter, all ruled by Mars and So it then just sort of like puts the brakes on a bit, sort of, you know, and it’s trying sat.
[00:28:36] So the Mars is trying to Saturn and so it puts, it puts a breaks on gently. It’s, it’s a very gentle breaking, so it’s a time, it’s quite a reflexive time actually, with the moon coming outta tourists, Venus, Uranus, and Taurus. So even though you’ve got all those planets and areas, which sort of seems very rah, rah, rah, um, the Mars in cancer is much so.
[00:28:59] Again, much more yin. It’s a time to reflect, a time to contemplate. And the, with the moon nearing Taurus as well, and Mars and Cancer, there’s a time to perhaps retreat cuz it’s trying to Saturn and PIs. So there’s gonna be a, feeling like you just want to, um, be alone or, you know, you could be alone.
[00:29:19] Not necessarily just, just yourself, but with others. But you know, it’s a bit of an escape, I guess, if you like, um, a retreat. So, you know, it’s a great time for rituals. It’s a great time to meditate, to do Tai chi. I mean, Mars try and mu satin and Pisces is such a tai chi or a yoga sort of signature on there.
[00:29:41] Um, it’s uh, it’s a gentle. If you like. So again, that’s quite contradictory to all those planets and Aries. Um, but it’ll really soften it. It will, you know, it will soften it and it’s. It’s a very strategic time. It’s like if you think of Aries and you’re about to, you know, shoot an arrow into a target, this is the time to actually think, how am I gonna do this?
[00:30:06] What am I gonna do? How, what is the best way? You know, that sort of thing. So, um, yeah, so it’s a, it’s a nice contemplative time and it’s a nice energy to have with Pluto just gone into Aquarius. Mm. And with all that areas as well. What and.
[00:30:25] Amanda Walsh: Dynamic
[00:30:26] Wendy Stacey: week. Yeah, it’s very dynamic. Wow. It’s, yeah, but there’s a lot of nice things going on.
[00:30:31] I mean, it is sort of rah rah, rah in the middle of it, but there’s some, you know, with mars going into cancer, I mean, it feels like it’s been in Gemini forever. Um, yes. You know. Since I, what was it, September, October? Yes. So it’s been there a long time. Mm-hmm. . So it’s, we are quite gonna welcome that Mars and cancer, some astrologists may say it’s, and, and it’s fall, but actually it can be, you know, very contemplative.
[00:30:58] They’re very reflexive and it’s also, it’s very internal. So one can, do some good deep in a work, particularly trying to Saturn good time to do personal work. yeah.
[00:31:10] Amanda Walsh: So, Wendy, yes, I may miss this, but we, we started talking about Pluto moving into Aquarius this week, but I didn’t catch what day that’s actually
[00:31:19] Wendy Stacey: happening.
[00:31:20] Oh, okay. It’s the 23rd. Um, 23rd moves in. Moves in on the 23rd.
[00:31:26] Amanda Walsh: Do you view this as the official, like move into the age of Aquarius or are you not?
[00:31:34] Wendy Stacey: Uh, no. No, I don’t see it as the official, no, because the, the age of Aquarius is, is, um, based on the procession of the equinoxes. which is a 25,000, 25,000 year cycle. Mm-hmm. . So it’s all very up for debate. When that move to Aquarius is, it’s when we are going backwards from PIs to Aquarius, um, there’s a lot of different debate on that.
[00:32:00] Yes. Um, But a lot of people think it’s the age of Aquarius because we’ve got so much, we, we are actually on the brink. We, you know, we, well, we’ve smacked bang in the middle of this incredible change to all these things aquarium, but it’s quite different than the aquarium age.
[00:32:17] Amanda Walsh: Regardless, we are walking into a period of time where aquarium themes are going to be front and center. Yeah. Yeah. And whether or not this is the official moment that, I mean, do you think we’re alive for the shift into the age of Aquarius, or do you think that it’s coming way later or that it already
[00:32:39] Wendy Stacey: started?
[00:32:41] I’m, I don’t think we’re in it yet. But we are in that qui, we’re in a very Aquarian era. . There’s still more to come, and we’ve got quite a few ingress, so it goes into Aquarius, goes back and forth and back and forth again until November next year. But it’s the first ingress I would, um, think is, yeah, it’s the big powerful Well, yeah, you’re gonna hear on, on that date, the 23rd of March.
[00:33:06] You are going to hear the word freedom more than you’ve ever heard ever before. And you’re like, you know, freedom, equality. You know, all those things. Aquarium.
Equality & Aquarian Energy
[00:33:16] Wendy Stacey: And does, does
[00:33:17] Amanda Walsh: equality for aquarium energy mean the same, or does it just be equal, like equal value or, or is it, is it sort of getting rid of the leo kind of individuality and, and like unique expression?
[00:33:34] Or is it, is it talking about something different when it’s talking about equality?
[00:33:39] Wendy Stacey: When, when Aquarius thinks of equality, when we talk about equality as an Aquarius, um, it’s, it’s about. Everyone has equal access. Everyone has an equal voice. Everyone has equal skills. Treated the same.
[00:33:55] Anti-discrimination, anti prejudism. It’s quite interesting. My, uncle once wrote for Greenpeace and he said that, un until we get threatened by aliens, will human beings not be able to join hands and see themselves as human beings? That’s a very Aquarian.
[00:34:15] Thought process on many levels. Um, the fact that it’s a, uh, the space, it’s aliens and, you know, threatened or not threatened, but even just the, the thought of it or the, it’s propaganda or not, you know, the thought of that actually makes people realize that we are all human. And that is a very Aquarian thing.
[00:34:39] And we’ve never really done that as We’ve never, we’ve done it in pockets, um, but actually as a global society, mm, it’s, it’s, it’s never been done, I guess.
Personal Effects of Pluto in Aquarius
[00:34:51] Amanda Walsh: Wendy, if there are people that are wanting to know how Pluto in Aquarius might affect them personally, yes.
[00:34:58] And they’re thinking about getting a reading maybe, maybe through our Astrologer Connect platform. What would be a great question to bring in astrologer about Pluto in
[00:35:09] Wendy Stacey: Aquarius? Three things I’d look at where, which. Pluto is moving through their chart, which house that’s in, what is it affecting, what, and of course what aspects it’s making.
[00:35:20] If anyone has anything at zero degrees of fixed, so Leo, Scorpio or Taurus, Pluto is gonna square or oppose that and, and it’s, they’re gonna know that’s happening. You know, they’re gonna. Feel it. And they would’ve been feeling it for quite a while. But also, you know, you’re, it’s Pluto, Aquarius, the rulers of that is, is Satin and Uranus and Satin, and Pisces and Uranus is in Taurus.
[00:35:44] So I would also be looking at what they’re doing in the natal chart too, how they’re picking up the chart, how they’re picking up the, um, those planets. And if they’re, you know, cuz sometimes they won’t, you know, you’ll. Plenty of people that won’t be triggered by, um, the, of course be influenced socially, but not triggered personally.
[00:36:05] Hmm. Um, and so where those planets are in their chart is both na and by transit. Okay.
Theme of the Week
[00:36:14] Amanda Walsh: And in terms of the overarching theme for the week, if we had to choose one word or one phrase, what
[00:36:20] Wendy Stacey: would you say?
[00:36:21] I would say it is the absolute. Beginning of so many things. Mm-hmm. It is a new start, reset. It’s the, the reset button has been pushed this week. Mm. Wow. Okay.
[00:36:37] Amanda Walsh: Well, I mean, I think for a lot of people that’s probably really good news, , and I think for some people it might be a little unsettling, but either way it’s happening.
[00:36:46] So now we know once we have the information, then we can make choices on how we wanna work with it. Right. That’s the whole reason. , why we do the weekly weather. It’s like, yeah, here, here’s the weather forecast, here’s the astrological currents we’ll be writing. Now you’re aware you can make choices, you can decide how you wanna engage with these cosmic tides,
[00:37:07] Wendy Stacey: right?
[00:37:08] Yeah. Yeah. And there’s always a positive outcome. It’s, there’s always positive ways to work with that. Yeah. Absolut. And you,
[00:37:16] Amanda Walsh: you see that right, Wendy? I mean, not everybody agrees with that statement. Oh, but I actually see it the same way too. Is that Yeah. That, that there is always a positive, um, possibility.
[00:37:28] There’s always, and it also depends on how we define positive. I mean, sometimes positive is uncomfortable.
[00:37:34] Wendy Stacey: Sure. And, and it’s, but it’s, it’s instead of, instead of, um, resisting the, you know, what’s going on. Yeah. There’s something always great about embracing it and being in that and, and realizing whether it starts, and sometimes I think things can start off uncomfortable, but the more you sit with it, the more familiar you become with it too.
[00:37:56] And the more you know, you, you can end up embracing it, in fact. Yeah. And you know, and there’s ways to work with it. It’s really, you know, um, and everyone’s different. So all the different energies, not always compatible with everyone, but even still, I think people can use it and work with it, do something they haven’t done before.
[00:38:16] It’s, it’s walking in other people’s shoes, you know. Okay,
[00:38:20] Wendy Stacey: Wendy,
[00:38:21] Amanda Walsh: so just a quick recap. We have Pluto moving into Aquarius. Again, a huge, huge shift. It’s a historical moment for us. It is triggering the, the, the same point that happened in December of 2020, which was the Jupiter Saturn conjunction. So some of the themes and things that were coming up. Are are also brought into this time.
[00:38:42] They’re not isolated events. Right.
[00:38:44] You said that you were entering the Star Trek era, all things space and sky. This is probably good for astrology.
[00:38:52] Wendy Stacey: Huh? That’s fabulous for astrology. Yes. Okay. Flying
[00:38:56] Amanda Walsh: tech space, our place in the universe, sky focused weather, birds, aerodynamic stuff.
[00:39:03] So sky things You also said it’s about the brain developing, understanding what we know, how we keep up. Education will be shifting. Our education, the way we eat our, our social structures have been built around a very earthly. Environment where we’re like creating things in a factory like industrial Revolution and things like that.
[00:39:24] As this shifts, so does the way we work, so does the way we educate, so does the way we do life. So this is gonna be interesting, like you said, we also have the Equinox at uh, zero Degrees Aries. You said this is a time where people are gonna start to feel renewed. Um, That there’s, this is a time to do something new and spontaneous.
[00:39:47] Very high energy. I heard you say that a lot for the beginning of the week. Very high energy. Good time to start things, uh, good things to try, good time to try things you haven’t done before. And get in contact with people you haven’t been in contact with for a while. So it’s like a lot of fresh start, new beginning, high energy, lots of initiation.
[00:40:11] Wendy Stacey: Be brave. Yeah,
[00:40:12] Amanda Walsh: be brave. I love that. Okay. Then we have the, the last part of the week, which, which shifts a little bit. It’s a little bit lower energy. There may be some hurdles to jump over, but this is a great opportunity to get creative. Focus on things like sleeping, cooking, um, gardening. So definitely a, a like a grounding kind of energy comes in.
[00:40:34] And then again, towards the end of the week we have, so we have high energy. For the most of, of the beginning part of the week. And then we have sort of a grounding slower energy and then we end the week with an electric vibe with um, a great time to do things that are out of the box. The markets may be a little volatile and crazy.
[00:40:55] The hum that that Mercury and Gemini hum is loud cuz we’re at the very last degrees of Gemini now and. And then the final day is a great day to retreat, escape, do rituals, take a pause. This has been a huge week, so this will be a great day to really just like integrate and digest it and process it, right?
[00:41:19] Wendy Stacey: Yeah, absolutely. It is gonna be a week of digestion. Yes, definitely. Definitely, and we’re
[00:41:26] Amanda Walsh: gonna have some more opportunities to hang out together and explore not only Pluto and Aquarius, which will be really fun to hear lots of different astrologer’s perspectives on this. Pluto and Aquarius, both the opportunities and some of the things to look out for.
[00:41:41] Like you said, Wendy, like. We gotta maybe work a little bit harder to bring the heart into things and we need to play. I mean, it’s one of the things I’ve been thinking about with AI and with the, the way things are getting so technologically focused. I feel that people will appreciate even more when you bring your heart into something, when you infuse your unique personality into something because it’s gonna become increasingly rare.
[00:42:10] To see those things happen. Right. So you said heart, you said play. Um, but we’re, again, we’re gonna have an opportunity here from lots of different astrologers about this Pluto, Aquarius, but also Saturnine PIs, also some of the transits that are coming in the next few years. Big ones like Uranus moving into Gemini and some of those great big global ones we’re, we’re all gonna be doing together.
[00:42:34] Amanda Walsh: And then, like I said in the beginning, we’ll be, we’ll be cover. Personal, big game-changing. Life-changing transits where having the awareness of them before they happen while you’re in them, even the retrospective understanding can be so helpful because then you’re actually getting to work really tangibly with the energies and do what you can to bring about the best outcomes, especially for some of these ones that are known and like Notorious for being really, really challenging.
[00:43:06] So, We’ll be doing that this week and it’s gonna be really fun. And you’re gonna be with Wendy again. Um, so looking forward to that. Again, that’s
