The Outer Planets as the Bridge to the Soul
A Deep Dive into Uranus, Neptune and Pluto
Mark helps you shift your conceptual orientation to bring the outer planets to life with new meaning.
The outer planets – Uranus, Neptune and Pluto – often get a bad reputation among astrologers. Some who use traditional techniques do not even acknowledge them, as if all discovery stopped with Saturn. Many others do explore them, but as if that shadow of Saturnian judgement still lingered on. In this limited view, Uranus becomes a sign for rebels, Pluto is all about death and Neptune just a lost cause! This kind of simplistic, judgmental thinking does not serve the needs of our times.
Many come to astrology seeking answers about their life, its meaning and its purpose. The outer planets express this meaning from a transpersonal point of view; i.e. a view that transcends and includes the personal. The outer planets are central to understanding the purpose of our existence. Dane Rudhyar called the outer planets the “higher octaves” of the inner planets, hence they can be seen to express a higher level of purpose and integration.
This workshop begins with an analysis of the outer planets’ discovery charts – the nature of the periods in which they were discovered. We will develop a profound thesis of their meaning on a collective level. From that foundation, we explore how the outer planets can be used to deepen our understanding of the natal chart and of our personal evolution.
We look at Uranus’s role as the memory function of the collective energy field, then we’ll consider how this archetype facilitates an understanding of trapped memories within the individual’s larger energy field as well as how to heal from them.
We explore Pluto as the central factor of emotional and psychological significance; how we relate to the memories symbolized by Uranus; how we have made them into our story.
We think of Neptune as the ultimate symbol of our aspiration to higher meaning. Depending on our openness to the infinite energy field of life, this could represent our greatest spiritual inclination and triumph or, sadly, even our most tragic disillusionment and loss. Neptune is seen as the potential of the relationship between Pluto and Uranus to be held in balance.
Mark draws on multiple example charts from his extensive client work as well as a number of historically significant charts to express the deeper meaning of the outer planets.
