As mentioned in Monday’s Daily Astrology, the asteroid Juno is currently interacting with the Uranus-Pluto square. This set-up is keeping the themes of relationships, jealousy (especially in sexually intimate partnerships), the inner relationship to self, and social justice very active in our personal lives and in the collective sphere.
In honor of Juno’s prominence in the Uranus-Pluto square (the defining aspect of our era, ongoing into 2015) as we begin this new year, I wanted to invite you to revisit the archived Blue Studio conversations Eric recorded for Planet Waves FM this past fall.
Let’s get 2013 started by actually talking about all this sex and self-relationship stuff as candidly as we can.
With Mercury in Capricorn set to conjoin Juno on Friday Jan. 4, you may find your mind is already tuning itself to this station. With any luck, the words will be right on the tip of your tongue (or at your fingertips, if you’re typing), ready to lay a solid foundation of curiosity-fueled discussion — with your partner(s), and yourself.
Juno’s themes really came into consciousness on the solstice, when the asteroid was joined by the Sun in the first degree of Capricorn. Juno is now at 6 Capricorn, almost midway between the degrees occupied by Uranus (5 Aries) and Pluto (10 Capricorn).
In other words, the tune for theses early days of 2013 is being called by Juno on the Aries Point (the first few degrees of all four cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, count as the Aries Point). That’s the hot spot where personal and political intersect, making us aware of how we engage with the world around us — and how ‘the world’ impacts our most personal, inner lives.
The Blue Studio broadcasts are collected on this official Blue Studio page. The last interview recorded, “Liza is Her Lover,” begins automatically when you land on the page, but you can stop it and click the word “archives” to see the full listing of interviews.
Eric has put the Blue Studio series on hold while he works on LISTEN, the 2013 annual edition from Planet Waves, but plans to resume once he wraps up that gorgeous, in-depth investigation of the astrology of 2013. In the meantime, I welcome any and all comments about these interviews, as well as any insights that have percolated up from your own inner depths that seem Juno-related.
