The Sun entered Sagittarius Nov 22nd.After a transformative time in Scorpio where we´ve probably gotten in contact with our more hidden parts we can now begin focusing our energy outwards. The energy is lighter and expansive. These are also times of intensive celebration, socialization and preparation- for Christmas in some parts of the world.
The signs of the zodiac is actually exactly like a calendar that follows the natural cycles of life on earth and the ever changing cycle of light and darkness.
We can clearly see that the suns progression through the 12 signs mirrors what is happening on earth and how we arrange things. The Suns travel through the signs is also a procedure where we are students, of life.
During Scorpio (23/10- 22/11) times we took a journey inwards, probably met some monsters and dusty creatures that we haven´t given any attention to in a while, but maybe also found some treasures of gold that we had forgotten about – treasures of the inside that are easily forgotten in a world that most of the time focuses the energy outwards.
Hopefully we´ve also let go of some old fears now.
With a higher consciousness we can now spread our newfound light. After survival of transformation often optimism and enthusiasm follows. Two words that are descriptive of Sagittarius. Now when we´ve survived we can afford to have faith in the future, canalizing energy in to beliefs and expansion of consciousness. We want to show the world what we´ve learned through our travel inwards in Scorpio! Sagittarius people are often found in occupations that are connected to higher learning, philosophy and beliefs, all kind of teachers and also preachers.
Also the travel industry is connected to Sag, everything that involves expansion of mind and physical movement and expansion.
So why this shift from transformation in Scorpio to expansion of consciousness? Well, what are we people without our beliefs and faith in the future…life would be meaningless without anything “higher” to believe in. Now days many people live in secularized societies but still people light candles, and goes to church in the big holidays of December. Maybe not to pray, but to at least be reminded that there might be something bigger that surrounds us. This can give us hope in the darkness, both the physical darkness of the season and the spiritual darkness that unfortunately also exists in the world today. Sagittarius teaches us that hope is essential for survival.
Sagittarius sign is known as the centaur, a half man half horse creature, this represents that the sign has succeeded on integrating the earthly and the divine, the mortal and the immortal. This is where the higher consciousness rises. With the bow it aims for the ultimate truth. For Sag life is a journey searching for the truth, and probably Sag also says that it´s the journey of finding truth that is the whole point…and fun :) not so much to hit the target.

I searched astro.com for famous people with the T- square in their chart. I found a lot of relics, and what I mean with that is a lot of old famous people that lived for a drillion years ago, and then I found…Tina Turner! Who hasn´t been affected by Tina Turner in one way or another!? So I choose her to look at her T- square that I wrote some about in the previous post. So you better read that one before you read this post :D
Tinas T-square happened to be very similar to mine! In the same signs and the same houses! Only that she has the focal planet (also called apex planet) in Pisces instead of Virgo like me. A red triangle connecting Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces
Can you see it? It´s very obvious.
If you don´t see it you might consider getting glasses :P
You can compare it with my chart in the previous post and you will see that they are very similar. You might think I´m very self centered now choosing a T- square similar to mine and with the incredible Tina Turner also, but she was the only interesting person I could find with a T-square that was not 300 years old and a bit forgotten :D Although the T- square is said to be found in at least 40 % of all natal charts. So it´s not exactly uncommon.
As an opposition always is included in a T-square this means that we have the usual power struggle between the two (or sometimes more) planets in the opposition. The focal planet is a dynamic principle that has trouble getting integrated into the awareness- process of the opposition without causing tensions, self blockage and imbalance within the individual. These tensions express themselves through the individuals relationships. The focal planet causes the opposed planets to get in conflict with each other instead of complementing each other like they should when they function optimal.
The sign and house position of the focal planet tells us where the tension is felt. As in Tinas case the seventh house and Pisces.
The first thing I come to think about in this moment of writing is that Tina got almost killed by her ex husband, that tortured her mentally and physically for many years. This got broadcasted all over the world so it´s a quite famous story.
And her focal planet is Mars in the seventh house of relationships. Any bells ringing?? It doesn´t need to have a connection, but it could.
The T- square is considered a dynamic aspect in the horoscope that forces the individual to take action and try to balance the tensions. It´s a psychological struggle that is considered a constructive force within the person.
It is said that people that have made an above average impact on the world often have this aspect pattern.
How the focal planet “acts” within this pattern depends a lot on how it is managed, as I said if it´s managed in a good way it can be a great driving force for the individual, but mismanaged it can intensify the negative matters of the opposition like for example lack of understanding of the rights and needs of others.
The house and sign where you find the focal planet indicates where you can find frustrations, habitual insecurities and defensive reactions.
So to keep it simple…it´s important to look at the focal planet and it´s position so that you can manage this planet in a good way. Look at the house and sign and see if it gives you any clues about your life (if it´s your own natal chart) and if you manage the planet in a good way or not.
When properly handled the focal planet can play a mediating role in keeping the opposing planet from becoming unresolved in their action.
I said I was going to write about the different nature of the mutable, fixed and cardinal T- square, but I think this is enough for this time. If you have basic knowledge of astrology you can probably figure out what the difference is.
But remember that a proper T- square is always made up by one opposition and two squares together.
And to say something about Tinas T- square…well we can guess that Mars is a energy that must be properly handled in her life, to not cause frustrations. And Mars in Pisces is already a bit challenging from the start.
I finish this post with saying that Tina is an incredibly woman! – A true force of nature that have had a brilliant career and survived a man that nearly killed her. She just has a Goddess aura surrounding her. A true inspiration for many woman in the world I think!!
Ps: Is it just an accident that Tina is famous for her great legs, or is it because she is Sagittarius? – Ruler of the legs :D
Drew Barrymore is born in the mutable sign of Pisces. Mutable signs can be very good actors/actresses because of their chameleon skills.
The last day of the Astrology course for this term we discussed important aspect patterns. We looked at our own horoscopes to investigate this. I discovered that I have a mutable T- square in my chart.
For those who don´t know, the zodiac signs are divided into three groups of different qualities.
If you take a look at my chart that I´ve added you can see the T- square as a red triangle between the Sun, Moon and Uranus. Or if you don´t know the planet symbols look at Gemini, Sagittarius and Virgo and you will see that a red triangle binds them together.
A T- square always consists of 3 or more planets creating one opposition and two squares all together. Quite easy to see if you look at it isn´t it?
A T- square always falls in signs of the same quality. As for me then- The mutable signs. And I have a feeling that my T- square is very strong because both the Sun and the Moon are participating in my T- square. The two most Influential planets in the personality.
And I know now after 31 years of living that the mutable energy is a very strong force in my life.
I also have both the ascendant, Mercury, and Neptune in those three mutable signs.
So what about mutable signs?
The mutable signs owns a great flexibility and also an urge to “move” either physically, mentally or emotionally. Or all three of them at the same time.
The word mutable comes from the Latin root “Mutabilis” that means change. You can say that the mutable signs have the change within them. They move easily and smooth through changes and are not the first ones striving against them when they come unpredictably. This is of course a very useful ability but the challenge for mutable signs can instead be to keep steady and rooted when this is needed, and to not escape too easily. The mutable signs are really the shape shifters of the Zodiac and this can sometimes express itself as a restlessness.
The mutable signs live in a changing world and with the change also coming from inside of them. This is a natural state for them.
Have you seen the children program called “Barbapapa”? One of my favourite shows when I was a kid. The Barbapapa family and their members have the ability to change into any object desirable. Say a chair or an airplane for example…Wonderful. The whole Barbafamily lives within the mutable energy :D
The Barbapapa was invented and written by two French authors.
My mutable life
In my life the mutable energy has expressed itself as a restlessness, definitely. Sometimes I see now that I´ve left situations and people maybe a bit too easy. Because I´ve had it so easy to just ride the change and trusting something better will come. But it´s not always that something better comes. Sometimes it just becomes an endless circle of starting over and over again. So that is something that I have to work on. But I think I´ve evolved a lot here only the last few years.
My strong side is that I have a tremendous ability to adapt fast to circumstances.
In the next post I will tell you what the T- square means, whether you may have it in fixed, mutable or cardinal signs. But not everybody have a T- square.
Ps. If you see any misspellings I´ll be very grateful if you tell me.
