Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others, it is the only means.
— Albert Einstein
Before tomorrow is history, know-how will be on the way out, and show-how will be on the way in. It begins with Jupiter’s ingress to cardinal Cancer just before 9:40 pm EDT today. It will flow into the reversal of Mercury’s apparent motion through watery Cancer tomorrow shortly after 9 am EDT. All very showy stuff, but nothing shows more than the Sun.
All during the 24 hours of Jupiter’s grand entrance and Mercury’s retreat, the Cancer Sun will illuminate how to handle it by being precisely positioned to take its turn in the grandest water trine since the origin of our modern calendar.
Retrograde Neptune has held forth continuously from its Pisces home for more than a year after a century and a half of hiatus. Retrograde Saturn has entered the third season of its first Scorpio sojourn since the 20th century. Mercury retrograde will reprise 1967, and Jupiter’s return to Cancer will take us back to the first year of our still-new millennium. The like of this combination, collaborating through the water signs, has not seen the light of day since before our calendar was first used. A light of day which comes from only one place.
Solar preeminence is so pervasive as to require no gilding. There is no other source of day or light. That’s how, in astrology, the Sun comes to symbolize consciousness itself, without which there is only darkness.
Mercury and Venus have previously held the place in recent weeks. Each provided a brief prelude, connecting all three water signs from Cancer in the course of a few days with successive trines to first Neptune, then Saturn.
Tomorrow, in the course of one day, the Sun will take its turn by precisely completing the same unprecedented grand water trine while also illuminating both Jupiter’s advance to the role, and Mercury’s turn back towards the moment.
It will be a moment when you would best emulate the Sun. To begin, you need only be aware of what is happening. Neptune, Saturn and Jupiter will symbolically swim upstream for more than a year. They are returning from the vast ocean of modern history, effectively bringing all of it with them, to spawn the future you will help determine simply by being present.
To be consciously present for such a confluence is to illuminate yourself from within. It is not to be afraid. It is to accept and embrace the sacred responsibility of your birthright as co-creator of the lives that will follow yours, perhaps for centuries to come. You will not be called upon to know how to accomplish the task for which you were born. Know-how is on the way out.
Instead, you will be called upon to show what modern history has not previously shown you, or anybody else.
You have lived sufficiently long and seen enough to show how it is done by example. You have been shown more than enough war, want and ignorance to show it to anybody else. It is for you now to show the light within. It is for you to let the Sun inside you shine the way so that those who follow will emerge from, rather than enter, an increasingly unconscious darkness. A darkness that has gone on for far too long is now converging, not as a doom to defeat you, but to be reborn in fresh waters, and redeemed by your example.
Don’t worry about what you don’t know. Show us what you got. Show us how to do it, as it has never been done before. Most importantly, and to use as your guide, show us as you would have any one of us show to, and about, you.
