In these next two videos in the series I go deeper with my discussion of the most important energies of the coming year. This includes (in part 3) a look at the charts for the full year ahead, including the important alignments that unfold over the course of the US election season (alignments for the primary season, the election day chart, and those leading to the inauguration). Also included in Part 3 is a brief look at the natal chart of Donald Trump and his transits as he faces his impeachment trial.
In Part 2 of the forecast series I continue to explore the power of the Once-in-1000-Year Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto triple conjunction that has been amplified over the last couple of weeks by the Sun and Mercury joining the conjunction. I discuss more of my reasoning behind calling this a “Dragonrider Portal” and how the range of different stories about dragons really fit the quality of these planets coming together.
There are many kinds of dragons and many different kinds of relationships with dragons that are portrayed in mythology, literature, video games and films. There are, for example, the stories where the dragon must be slain. Here we can think of Archangel Michael and Saint George fighting their Dragons, or the Slaying of Smog in Tolkien’s “The Hobbit.” There’s also the Japanese 8-headed dragon, Orochi, slain by Susa-no-o, and the Vedic Vritra slain by Indra.
Dragon slayer stories are one way of representing the overcoming of chaos or the control of potentially dangerous energies. These stories of destroying dark forces to me feel more masculine/patriarchal in their approach to these shadow energies, but there are other stories that feel more feminine. Rather than slaying, these stories focus on the taming, riding, or freeing of dragons.
