February 12: Neptune, Mercury and Mars triple conjunction in Aquarius

Neptune, Mars and Mercury have been visiting the 24th mansion of the 'Veiled Star' or 'Holy Grail' in Aquarius since 1 February 2013. This lies between 7° to 19° Aquarius (sidereal) or  0°15' - 12°19' Pisces (tropical).  This brought to the fore issues regarding wellness (mind, body, soul) and wealth. There has also been an increase in global awareness about what is morally right. To understand the significance of this occurrence, each of the elements involved will be examined and from that a better understanding can be deduced. The mansion where this triple conjunction is taking place will first be discussed, then the three planets (Neptune, Mercury and Mars) and then the final conclusion.

24th Mansion of the 'Veiled Star' / 'Holy Grail' / Ekkysians / 7th Star of the Rampart, in the Star Sign Constellation of Aquarius.

Each galactic palace (mansion) emits its own energy.
We can use this energy to our advantage and / or to warn us against taking certain actions. Aquarius rules the 11th house of the traditional zodiac which rules society at large, friends, hobbies and financial gains. It also carries the energy of artistic ability, psychic insight, writing, problem solving and healing. That which was hidden may now be revealed. This mansion relates to dreams, visions, astrology, astronomy and aviation.

The warning of this mansion are: issues regarding rape, being bitten by animals or insects, dealing with undesirable people, defects and sudden destruction.

The symbolism for this galaxy is that of a thousand doctors or healers, implying the healing of the human condition mind, body and soul. Aquarius pours out the elixir of life.

The 24th mansion is ruled by the Royal Star Fomalhaut, the Northern Lunar Node, the Guardian of Cosmic Waters and the ArchAngel Gabriel. Its numbers are 6, 24 and 42. 6 is also the number for money making.

Symbolism of 1000 doctors (healers): Medicine man, doctor, healer, psychologist and psychic. Healing human conditions (body, mind and soul). Solving problems - puzzles, cross-word puzzles, network problems, scientific problems or trying to solve the mysteries of an illness. 

Symbolism of the Round Circle - boundaries that are in place and solving issues regarding these issues and how to redress them.

Keepers of the Holy Grail: 
Gabriel, Joseph of Amirathea and Kuthumi,
Northern Lunar Node, the Guardian of Cosmic Waters

This Mansion responds to the masses, breaking of social taboos and defending the underdog. It is also a sign of diseases and incidents due to cold weather. It favors round shapes and going with the flow.

Tarot Cards:
Ace of Cups - Imagination, inner emotions, receptive, reflective, psychic.
Star - Aquarius the water-bearer, destiny.
High Priestess - Veiled Star of Hidden things and psychics.

Ascended Masters / Guardian Angels of Aquarius:
Keepers of the Holy Grail and Door Keepers of Mysteries: Joseph of Amirathea and Kuthumi.
ArchAngel Gabriel - water bearer or cup bearer of the gods.

Influence on Society at large: Breaking social norms and freedom of expression. The masses are highlighted and we may see mass movements or organisations coming to the fore now. This energy can be felt as a chaotic influx of energy as a result of past actions. Excessive rain or incidents with water may also occur. There will be an increase in social gatherings or social reform at this time. People may want to socialize more but there is also a warning against overindulgence and violence. Diseases and accidents associated with water and cold weather. Body, mind and soul healing is possible during these showers, so now is an excellent time for medical treatment; to see a psychologist / psychic; and to visit a temple or spiritual retreat. Dancing, music and entertainment industries will all do well.

On a personal level: the influence will be felt where Aquarius lies in your birth chart. In that particular area of life (eg love life) you will encounter a sudden rush of events. These events will often come as a result of one's past interactions with people. This is a good time to reinvent yourself. Rejuvenate, realign and hold positive regard for yourself and others. It is only when we love and regard ourselves that we can do the same for others.

Exercise, Dancing and Music: therapy for the body, mind and soul. Change your enemy into a dancing partner. Become aware and let go. Open yourself up to mind power and the use of psychokinesis (moving objects with your mind). Meditate, fast and pray for spiritual enlightenment so that darkness (ignorance) can be replaced with light (knowledge).

Neptune - makes us sacrifice to change.

Neptune is the planet of mystical escape, and of spiritual and psychic enlightenment. Neptune is about surrendering to a higher power. Neptune also rules escapism, that can result in people seeking refuge in alcohol, drugs, virtual reality and sleep. However, Aquarius is an extremely positive placement of Neptune for mystics, psychics, healers and also for dreams and visions presaging the future. Prayer, meditation and self-sacrifice (fasting) will bring good rewards. Neptune in Aquarius ignites the urge for spiritual enlightenment, seeking a higher consciousness and mystical experiences. Neptune will stay in Aquarius for 14 years until about 2026. Neptune rules hidden secrets and the mystical world of the psychic. Neptune connects us with higher values.

Neptune rules mystery, secrets, neurosis, delusions, hallucinations, hospitals, prisons and mental institutes. Neptune in Aquarius brings the opportunity to purify and reinvent yourself.  Neptune is also the planet of shapeshifting through self-sacrifice. King Solomon would fast (self-sacrifice) for 9 days to tap into magic. Odin hung himself upside down for 9 days before he created the Runes. Other examples of shapeshifting: the Hulk, werewolves, a caterpillar changing into a butterfly, a person who looses 30 kg and changes their looks and mannerism. This can only be achieved through sacrifice. For example, abstaining from food, sex and other physical pleasures. Enduring extreme discomfort to move the 'Hand of God'.

An astrological map representing the current positions of the planets in sidereal (real time) shows God's finger pointing at this triple conjunction of Neptune, Mercury and Mars. Powerful forces are at work here because it is governed or overseen by Saturn (God as judge), and Jupiter (God as teacher and commander).

The Sidereal zodiac is observable, empirically valid and reliable, astronomically verifiable, and therefore an exact science. For your personal chart and predictions contact Jade at

She died from her injuries thirteen days later while undergoing emergency treatment in Singapore for brain and gastrointestinal damage. After watching a film in South Delhi in the early evening, she and a male companion had boarded a bus, which was being driven as an unauthorized "joyride", thinking it was a public bus. The only other passengers on the bus were five men who were friends of the driver. All six, including the driver, were charged in connection with the sexual assault and have been arrested. After the attack, she was taken to Safdarjang Hospital, received multiple surgeries, and was placed on mechanical ventilation. On 26 December, she was moved to Singapore for further treatment, where she died on 29 December. The incident has generated international coverage and was condemned by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, who called on the Government of India and the Government of Delhi "to do everything in their power to take up radical reforms, ensure justice and reach out with robust public services to make women’s lives more safe and secure".

Conclusion and discussion of events that holds a connotation with the triple conjunction of Neptune, Mercury and Mars in Aquarius.

Widespread rains and floods are the result of Aquarius being activated (visited) by so many planets, especially Neptune that rules water. Waterborne diseases such as cholera is also to be expected. We also recently saw an increase in global awareness about the need to protect marine life.

Mars in Aquarius brought us Pope Benedict XVI's resignation. His number coincides with the number 16 'Tower' Tarot card representing Mars. Aquarius is the house that is being visited by Neptune, Mercury and Mars. Therefore the Aquarius energy rules the house. Aquarius deals with society at large and with social issues. The planets visiting Aquarius emphasize the need for social reform. To illustrate this lets take a look at the headlined gang-rapes. In both the above cases the girls were the 'sacrificial lambs' (Neptune). They were both able to identify at least one of the perpetrators before they passed away (Mercury). Mars in this case is the aggressive male sexual energy that is being placed in the spotlight. In both cases there is widespread social outcry for justice (Mercury in Aquarius). In other words, we need to rethink how to restore balance and harmony between the sexes (yin and yang). Maybe God's finger pointing at Mars (masculine) is showing us where the problem starts. Could it be because a large part of society believes that God is exclusively masculine, and equate women with a deceptive snake? And then there is the constant unrest, fighting and war. Could it be because a small portion of the earth is claimed as 'holy land', when in fact the whole earth is holy land? And maybe the place to start addressing these issues is in the Vatican? Another issue that we need to address with Neptune in Aquarius, is the senseless wiping out of marine life. Could this be because there is a widespread misconception that animals don't have souls?

Planetary headlines: Neptune triggers Aquarius to pour water down on earth. Mars hits the Vatican, the Middle-East and women. Mercury gives earthlings food for thought.

On an individual level the Neptune, Mercury, Mars triple conjunction in Aquarius can be experienced in the following ways:

*A need to speak out and stand up for your cause or -ism.
*Reorganizing yourself, your environment and your life.
*Getting policies and paper work in order.
*Feeling the urge to look after your wellness (mind, body and soul) through exercise, meditation, massage, etc. Wanting to improve your health and looks.
*A surge of creative ideas and the energy to bring them to light.
*An increase in cash flow, commerce, communication and learning.
*Feeling driven to increase business and make more money.
*A need to enhance your spirituality and religious activities.
*A need to visit a psychic, holistic healer, or spiritual retreat.

Body, Mind and Soul (Aquarius), must shapeshift / change (Neptune) through our thoughts (Mercury) and our actions (Mars). What affects one, affect all, as we are all part of the whole. Society needs to redress its values, beliefs and boundaries or we are headed for disaster.

Neptune stays in Aquarius for 14 years, presaging floods and heavy rainfalls. It urges us to seek higher spiritual values. Mercury and Mars show us which areas in society needs attention. Teach spirituality, compassion and love, not war!

Neptune - seek higher values.
Mars - restruct (ure) or destruct.
Mercury - Makes you think, doesn't it?
