The sequential sighting of each outer planet initiated both global and individual metamorphoses; options in choice, consciousness and innovation. The appearance of each outer planet is analogous to the ancient sacred practice of shamans leading their tribes to a threshold of new vision. Slow, incremental awakening brings stunning new possibilities and events. A brief look at the discovery horoscopes, their direct and immediate release of the “new” introduces how global outer planet transits touch you personally. They invoke, in cycles, greater conscious participation in your own individuation process. This talk focuses on the interpretation of the transits of the outer planets as unique personal shamans. The slow, incremental awakening through outer planet retrograde cycles is also woven into the promise of opportunity.
