Attached below you will see a chart cast for June 11th, 2021. Besides being my son Quinn’s birthday and the day after a potent Gemini solar eclipse, it is when the activating planet Mars moves over the charged cusp between Cancer and Leo, the two signs related to the Brow and Crown chakras. It is especially wonder-full with lovely Venus and Lady Luna in alchemically balancing Cancer nearby creating the basis for the alchemical marriage of silver and gold.

I have set equal houses and 0 Scorpio rising which creates the ATA or Alchemical Tantric Arrangement of the houses, e.g., houses 3 and 4 containing Capricorn and Aquarius, both ruled traditionally by Saturn with Cancer and Leo on the cusps of houses 9 and 10, ruled by the Moon and Sun.

Appropriate planets can now be seen to stimulate all 7 chakras:

First Root Chakra – ruling Saturn retro in Aquarius

Second Sacral Chakra – ruling Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces

Third Navel Chakra – Chiron and Eris in Aries

Fourth Heart Chakra – Uranus and Ceres in Vacca/Taurus

Fifth Throat Chakra – ruling Mercury retro and Sun in Gemini

Sixth Brow Chakra – ruling Moon and Venus in Cancer

Seventh Crown Chakra – Mars in Leo

Venus catches up with Mars on 13 July 2021 in radiant Leo, then Venus runs off but returns as Venus retro meeting three times in February 2022 in completing Capricorn and eventually transiting apocalyptic Pluto, then on March 6, 2022 they meet again exactly on the kundalini portal at 0 degrees of Aquariusto start a new cycle together!  Wow, what a romantic affair!  The divine passionate couple begin dancing together at the top of the ATA chart, play together all the way down to the bottom, and start again at the charged Chiron portal.



The central tantric channel through the chakras creates two primary portals in the twelvefold cycle of the zodiac, the Chiron/Kundalini Portal (CKP) at the cusp between Capricorn and Aquarius and the Alchemical Marriage Portal (AMP) at the cusp between Cancer and Leo.  Telluric forces move up at the CKP and celestial forces are brought down at the AMP.

The present grouping of planets creates a helpful arrangement for working with the energies of the ascending signs and their corresponding chakras:

  1. Ruling Saturn retro in Aquarius gives a strong serious Earth base to the Root Chakra. (Saturn’s square to Uranus is a potent fixed side issue)
  2. Ruling divine brothers Jupiter and Neptune are powerfully fertile in the sexual watery Sacral Chakra.
  3. Both Chiron and Eris are strong in Aries and the fiery Navel Chakra. (an important side issue is the explosive Tee-square of Eris to Pluto and Mars.)
  4. Uranus brings surprises to Vacca/Taurus. (the twisted square with Saturn paradoxically includes heavenly Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, and Saturn who goes better with earthy Vacca/Taurus)
  5. Sun and North Node contribute focus to the sign of the lover twins and ruling retro Mercury makes for dynamic Gemini synthesis at the Throat Chakra.
  6. Both ruling Luna and lovely Venus in Cancer accent the feminine silver Queen at the Brow Chakra in preparation for the alchemical union.
  7. Mighty Mars is fitting as masculine gold King at the AMP and tops off the cycle as spiritual warrior with power to draw down the celestial insights of the Crown Chakra.

In a rare symbolic completion of the ATA cycle, the golden insights of the alchemical marriage are appropriately handed off by transiting Mars and Venus to sacred Vesta in Virgo to distribute, thence enjoyed by Juno in Sagittarius, and then the divine passionate couple meet with Pluto and Vesta in Capricorn before joining a final time as they begin a new cycle at the beginning of Aquarius in 2022.

Other versions of this arrangement will occur for several years as the outer planets climb the chakra ladder until Jupiter meets Uranus in Leo.  Yearly when the radiant Sun and his entourage enter royal Leo around the 22ndof July form a similar arrangement of highly resonant planets throughout the signs and chakras.  In particular this time period leading up to and through the transit of the inner planets across the top or Alchemical Marriage Portal (AMP), is an especially advantageous time for AstroYoga contemplation and/or meditation.

There are impactful changes occurring on many levels in the world today and it is important to be focusing on actions that help purify and uplift.  There are many such activities and positive contemplations and/or meditations.  (See the AstroYoga section of our book Alchemical Tantric AstrologyThose found in yoga are especially effective right now with the present arrangement of appropriate planets activating all seven chakras.
