The Mutable Signs in Astrology: Change Always Comes Bearing Gifts


I know everyone is starting to gird their loins for the coming transits, perhaps even panic a little. Neptune is stationing to go direct squaring the Moon’s nodal axis just 10 hours after the Lunar Eclipse in Sadge. Following that is the mystery and spectacle of Venus crossing the Sun, which none of us will see again in this life time, reminding us of the love we hold inside our hearts just waiting to be expressed and perhaps teaching us how to better express and receive that love. That’s a lot of energy to try to understand or experience and impossible to contain.

Some important degree points to consider:

14 Sagittarius (or anything within 3 degrees of 14 Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini or Virgo)
3 Pisces (or anything within 3 degrees of 3 Pisces, Sagittarius, Gemini or Virgo)
15 Gemini (or anything within 3 degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo or Pisces)
5 Sagittarius ( or anything within 3 degrees of 5 Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo or Pisces)
5 Gemini ( or anything within 3 degrees of 5 Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo or Pisces)

Are we seeing a pattern, yet?  Or in the words of Rolf Harris: “Can you tell what it is, yet?”  Astrology is all about patterns, as is our physical reality.

All of those signs listed above are mutable signs. What are mutable signs? On a general level they’re about adapting to change, being willing to adjust, go with the flow of events. It is also important to remember that they thrive on change, on movement and will seek to move beyond what currently exists, to adjust plans, and redesign existing patterns. Ever spend an afternoon with a Gemini? I had a lover once with a Gemini ascendent and I heard this from him almost every day: “I’ve got to keep my options open.”  In other words, they are always expecting change and, in fact, hoping for it. Mutable signs are flexible. They like to explore possible alternatives. When stuff happens to mutable signs they respond by evolving, by moving beyond what exists or by breaking up what exists in to manageable parts and dispersing them outward. For them the world is never static and is constantly changing. They like it that way.

Therefore, we have a great opportunity to learn about change, to evolve beyond what exists. For those of us who are more comfortable with maintaining the status quo or being the initiators this can be difficult, even problematic. Panic may occasionally step in because it is an energy we find unfamiliar, an energy that goes against how we expect the world to behave. I will admit that even I, with my 5 planets in fixed signs, have had some difficult moments, have wanted to grab hold of something to keep it in place just a little bit longer.

So, I am going to go out on a limb here and suggest something the tiniest bit radical: Just Allow.

Let those mutable energies sweep you along in their wake and enjoy the ride. When it’s over you will have discovered another piece of the puzzle that is you.

Before you ask where to look, I would suggest you look at any planets you have in or around 3, 14 or 15 degrees. To see what area of life will be activated by these changing energies look on your natal chart for which house the following points fall in:

14 Sagittarius
3 Pisces
15 Gemini

This I got from Hal Bahr who got it from the movie, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. I think it sums up the situation best.

Namaste’ Y’all,
