The mutable signs ~ Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces ~ all represent the energy of the changing seasons.
There’s been an irritability in the air. Not of the Mars variety where we could blow our top. It’s based in the mutable energy of change that doesn’t let us settle.
Mutable signs remind us that change is necessary. Stagnation is not an option and remaining in the past lacks vitality. In such unpredictable and often volatile times, we seek the security of things unchanging. Change represents chaos, and chaos reminds us that we don’t have control. But chaos is from where life emerges. It’s the void that contains the all; where we come from and to where we all return.
Each Mutable sign follows a Fixed sign. The Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) represent the peak of a season. There is no denying in February that we’re in the depths of Winter in the Nth Hemisphere – and the height of Summer in the South.
Fixed energy is sure and stable. It’s the foundation stones upon which we build life. Mutable signs, however, transition us from this stability, simultaneously aware of what it’s emerging from and heading toward. Moving, changing, gathering information, mutability is never still, never stagnant. Always curious and of service.
Mutable signs gather the information we need to transition to the peak of our potential. They are the gate keepers to the Solstice and Equinox. They are the changing of the guard from one season to another. It is both receptive and dynamic.
A snake sheds its skin before it emerges anew. The energy of change can be uncomfortable because we can’t rest and we have no guarantee of what’s to come. We have to lean into trust and roll with the energy of now.
This particular mutable season is within the veil of a Venus Retrograde cycle. The energy of change is more potent because we’re being asked to look at what we’re going to leave behind in the Underworld. We will take a Phoenix journey down and through Scorpio’s lair. If you’re struggling against the winds of change right now, ask yourself what you’re holding onto and why. What is lingering from your past that’s draining your vitality?
There is endurance to mutable energy. It has the ability to adapt. To bend and not break. Take this tree wisdom with you though the Underwolrld. We’re all going together. No one is spared.
