Evolutionary Impulse

Full of extremes and intensity, the 1960s were, “…a wedding of forces creating a distinctively tumultuous, raucous, crazy, disruptive, experimental, awakening and vibrant time.”

~Making the Gods Work for You, astrologer Caroline Casey

astromandalagoldenThe generation of souls, who came into form during these times, now adults, carry the planetary transpersonal patterns of the 1960s–written into their energy bodies. I call this group, the 60’s Generation or the Virgo-Pisces Generation with the inclusion of those born 1969-1972, who carry a similar vibration, yet activate their function through the archetypes of air and fire, Virgo-Libra/Aries, along with Virgo earth.

Based in the elements of earth and water, this group as a whole carries an intense transformative healing archetypal signature, with radical aspects. Casey describes the souls born in the sixties, …as the first group to come in with an evolutionary wiring; nervous systems the medical community was in no way prepared to deal with, defining these children only as ADD, making way for future generations to come in with higher and higher frequencies.

Uranus, Pluto, and Chiron are intrinsic in the 60s Generation energetic makeup bestowing upon them a highly evolved potentiality to channel or process large amounts of light or consciousness through their entire beings (mind, body, spirit) at a very rapid rate.

Fueled by the Virgo-Pisces axis, this generation’s capacity to heal and spiritually transcend any wounds from the current life, as well as, any karmic residue from previous lives is immense. Therefore, many souls born at this time intensified their personal journeys by adding personal planets into their 60’s Generational signatures. To gain more insight, let’s first look into the roles Uranus, Pluto and Saturn played in the 1960’s and how they will express in current times:

The 1960s brought us the conjunction of Uranus and Pluto which began the call to evolve and revolutionize socially, politically, and spiritually. Now [2012-2015], as Uranus and Pluto form into a 90 degree square aspect, they herald an era of extraordinary social, political, and global transformation once again. The conjunction is the starting point of a cycle. The square is the turning point. These squares challenge us now to manifest the visions that were seeded in the 60s, especially for those with mid-degree planets in the signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces.

“By September 15th, 2008, the Pisces Full Moon forms a T-square with Uranus, the Sun in Virgo, and Pluto in Capricorn. This T-square aspect begins an incremental movement into a cycle of seven exact squares between Uranus and Pluto throughout 2012 and 2015. By late May of 2009 these two planets will be within a 6 degree orb of each other, beginning in earnest the radical transformation needed to awaken the collective.”
~Stephanie Austin. Mountain Astrologer/August-September 2008. Pg 106.

The sheer force of three outer planets and the not yet discovered centaur Chiron, in intimate union, in the signs of Virgo, Pisces, and Scorpio, formed the perfect environment for an enormous psychic-spiritual wake-up call (1962 Jupiter in Pisces conjunct Chiron)–what we now know as Spiritual Emergence. 

This emergence awakened visionary voices for change, and flooded with West with Eastern spirituality.  Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, John F. Kennedy, the Freedom Fighters, Black Panthers marched with unstoppable determination, calling for justice and civility, while the counter-culture bulked against the status quo norms, and free love, flower power, peace, sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll emerged in the collective mind, as did the emergence of environmental awareness (Rachel Carson~Silent Spring), anti-pollution laws, depth psychology, health food, organic farming, Eastern spirituality, and women’s equality.  In other words, the expansion of the times brought forth a collective Kundalini awakening if you will.

Kundalini, an east Indian term which stands for snake, or serpent power, and represents the feminine force of Shakti.  When the Kundalini realms awaken within a person or a body-of-people heightened awareness of the subtle body increases ten-fold.  Energy rises up through the chakra centers (system of the subtle body) and conscious awareness occurs, attuning one to all living energy, seen or unseen. 

The Chironic Force produces access to other dimensions, past lives or dreams, multi-dimensional reality, intuition, and spontaneous healing.  When the Chironic Force is established and utilized for the greatest good, healing becomes the natural state.  When suppressed, dis-ease and dysfunction take place leading to addictive tendencies to mask the pain of mis-alignment.

The long-standing transpersonal planets of the times, in Virgo, Pisces, and Scorpio, called for homeopathy, energywork, health food, organic farming, Shamanic healing, meditation, bodywork, communion with nature and spirit, the use of psychotropic drugs, and sexual freedom. These modalities and experimentation’s opened the collective unconscious to touch into other dimensions and past lives.

Chiron bridges these states into and through physical form acting as a bridge between the outer planets of Uranus (electrical transmutation) and Saturn (structure), it is the “…the how to planet for accessing subtle energies,” in the words of Barbara Hand Clow from her book Chiron:

It bridges our more physical selves with our more subtle selves… initiates us to help pay attention to our continual transformation (Uranus), our mystical feelings (Neptune), and our incessant karmic push (Pluto). Chiron initiates us on our path by creating the process (Virgo)…Chiron’s tense bridging of Saturn and Uranus explains the Virgoan structure tension that is able to hold so much consciousness, light, and illumination. (Hand-Clow)

Chiron was not yet discovered in the 1960’s making the ability to channel its energy still somewhat illusive to those born with Chiron-Virgo prominent in the natal chart, as well as to the collective. And although all the consciousness of the times poured through, the oppositions (180 degree angle) of the times also mirrored the split within the collective derailing conscious avenues from merging fully into mainstream consciousness.

By the summer of 1965, the Saturn went into retrograde motion in the sign of Pisces and joined Chiron.  They opposed Uranus, Pluto and Venus in Virgo, signifying the archetypal split within the collective.

Although the consciousness of the times poured through, the times also mirrored disintegration.  Retrograde in motion in August 1965, Saturn and Chiron conjunct represented the status quo’s repression of inspired healing solutions and their emergence into the collective. Saturn in opposition to Pluto formed the shocking misuse of power by the authorities, establishing an undercurrent of disregard for Natural Law (square to Sag) and the individuated and rising power of the feminine archetype, creating a deep mistrust within the collective of our patriarchal government, furthering the spiritual wounds of the time to an all time high. The result–the Vietnam War–furthering war for propaganda.

This isn’t to say significant changes didn’t take place, but overall, the fully realized feminine was suppressed and the excessive masculine continued to split from its essential role in honoring and protecting the Sacred Feminine and the Earth (think petroleum…).

The cultural suppression of the feminine Virgo archetype within the collective, combing with the intensity of the radical consciousness rising had to be channeled somewhere, and it did.

It overflowed into the evolutionary impulse of the
