Full Moon: Gemini/Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse @8 degrees. November 30, 2020

Neptune turns direct November 28th! Mars is on a roll.
Remember way back on May 22, 2020?
A New Moon in Gemini sent us on our way, and here we are at the Full Moon In Gemini, with extra sauce: It’s an ECLIPSE.

So what just happened? In a sense, we find out. Sagittarius Sun, Gemini Moon: Aren’t you curious??

The Lunation brings information. Mercury in Scorpio sextiles Jupiter, Saturn, & Pluto.
Clarity, as well as a duality of vision, with Neptune involved we may even hit kaleidoscopic: things are speeding up!

Reality is Always Freshly Born

The more successful a technique, the more it is guaranteed to produce certain results.
But reality can never be known in advance.
Creativity is not a matter of just applying know-how in order to achieve ends that have been figured out in advance.
Indeed, we may say that if you know what to do in any situation, it’s the wrong thing.
Living truth has to be created in the act of living and even the means have to be created in the act of giving ourselves to the task.
If you know what to say, it’s a lie.
If you know how to teach, you’re a propagandist.
If you know how to compose a verse, you’re not a poet.
If you know how to get along with your husband or wife, you’re not really married, you’re simply applying psychology.
(If you know how to heal your client, you’re not a real therapist)
Reality is not gained by know how.
Reality is always freshly born.
Whenever a relationship or action is real, it is being created and re-created from moment to moment.
The real question is not what to do, but
How can I give myself more completely to the situation, to the task, to the person at hand?
As one learns how to give oneself more and more unreservedly, one is led step by step and
Discovers what to do –

Idea 1: No one’s needs are being met, how do you continue to grow and thrive while fully and deeply not getting what you need?

Idea 2: The universe does not owe you fertile soil at this moment.

I think we are being planted in the rocks and it is our weediness, our wildness, that will be our survival.

The New Moon plants a seed and the Full Moon draws out what’s inside. Magnified now because it’s the ECLIPSE ZONE. Here we go: Let’s flip the script.

A couple of weeks ago, circa the New Moon in Scorpio you discovered/remembered that you can NEED again. You want things, people, situations, don’t you?

Even with a plan, and even without one. Even without a legit 5 year plan.

Desire: we didn’t get everything we needed, not with that Venus Saturn square, but wasn’t it interesting, wasn’t it motivating, to remember how to want?!

To have that ache, that ache that wakes you up, as tho for a 3am glass of water. Thirst to make you move, to make a change. Do you realize now you will be brave in the days ahead?

Some bits of actual information or practical puzzle pieces play out on a large scale. These little changes, take us from 0 to 60: blink blink blink: watch and learn.

Beautiful amateurs, that’s what it looks like. I do believe we will take what we know, and try.

Something is shifting, a road or two opens up in the mist. Sagittarius is on a journey, is building a story, there is an endless “and then what….” Some way or another we are cut loose to pursue new attachments, new developments. What we get is not so much a plot twist as it is a tiny baby revelation. New Born: let’s stumble into it, let’s be forced to discover what we really don’t know. And as something is eclipsed: it may be gone.

Here comes a vortex.

Let’s all take a breath together now. Let’s take a breath where we can relax into all the parts we don’t know.

Some are revealed and some as yet, are hidden, unspoken. Deliberately? Maybe.

We don’t know all of what it is we are losing. We don’t know what’s ahead. Not really. Let’s breathe in this idea of welcoming whatever sort of knowledge makes its way to our awareness. If it’s a shock, let it in.

In every conceivable way, you are indivisible from the limitless power of creation. I’m so glad you are alive and breathing here with us.

Love YOU!!!

Scorpio New Moon, Late Night November 14, 2020

Have we been following the moon around waiting for something to wish for? Desire nature, how long has it been?

When was the last time you imagined you could have something you wanted? How much grief is stored in that thought alone?

We don’t stop wanting. WE NEED TO WANT.

Mars finally moves ahead. The stopped clock chimes and we don’t keep staring at the wall waiting for it to grow eyes and stare back.

It’s not about pregnancy, though this is potent alright. The seed gets planted.

It could be that the plow hits a stone, and the stone hits you, and blood seeps from a cut above your eye and you see now, that you were never meant to be a farmer and the seed you plant is in your plane ticket, it’s in your book, in your backpack, it’s in the choice you make with your sweetheart about whose desires are more pressing and what comes next.

Mars is direct in Aries with Venus opposite him in Libra. Oh LOOK! A power couple and they make a T-Square with Pallas/Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn. Action! A web of INTERACTION.

Mercury receives a lightning bolt of a concept, and for the Sun & Moon, conjunct at 23 degrees Scorpio and for Juno right beside them, the beginning they propose is both backed by the powers that be, and in working relationship to the infinite.

It’s a powerful chart. All it asks for is desire. Your desire. Feed yourself a little blood.

Cheryl Strayed writes:

-The most terrible and beautiful and interesting things happen in life. For some of you, those things have already happened. Whatever happens to you belongs to you. Make it yours. Feed it to yourself even if it feels impossible to swallow. Let it nurture you, because it will.-

If it’s a risk, it’s worth it now, to see that blood when we have been starvlings for so very long. And when I say blood, what I mean is, vital energy, the good stuff, from the heart, from below the belt, whatever it is, you want it.

Here is potential, DEPTH, appreciable weight. It’s not a sad story, it’s a real one. You won’t miss your chance. You take it. It takes you.

Intimacy or trust. It could even be a family secret, or a promise you want to keep.

There is a feeling, an element of surprise? New content, again, importantly, we uncover what is hidden, and what do we have? It’s UNREGULATED EMOTION. Did you say you wanted something?

It’s not so much about an accident, as it is about patterning, what is owed, and finally being able to move ahead.

The thing is: we don’t have these infinite choices, not right now. The few we have, we take. It may be sudden, but it’s likely unconfusing.

If you want to amputate to achieve, you know the drill. You may not have to, you may be able to come up with next steps that are relevant, that move you towards power without renunciation. But you’ll know.

The machinations here are part of a bigger story. It’s not just what you mix up on your own. Whatever arrives as an opening for you, allow for a dream. Let yourself have it.

Where there might, for a moment, be safety or a connection, lets remember softness:

~ Pay attention to the gentle ones, the ones who can hold your gaze with no discomfort, the ones who smile to themselves while sitting alone in a coffeeshop, the ones who walk as if floating. Take them in and marvel at them. Simply marvel. It takes an extraordinary person to carry themselves as if they do not live in hell.”
– D. Bunyavong said that

Can you imagine wanting something you might get?

Let yourself have it. Float for a moment in a feeling of co-creation of your life.

What happens for this New Moon in Scorpio is that we open up the doors we have shut. We open to our desire nature, we say yes to being animals, in the best way, thinking and feeling animals with needs, perhaps complicated intertwining needs.

– Wendell Berry wrote

-I would like you to show me, if you can, where the line can be drawn between an organism and its environment. The environment is in you. It’s passing through you. You’re breathing it in and out. You and every other creature.-

As we breathe now, indivisible from every vibrating molecule, let’s imagine a change that is not a tragedy.

Let’s make friends with the idea that we are miraculously powerful, and at times use our powers for healing, for intimacy, and for good. Let’s breathe together one more time. I’m so glad you are alive, and breathing, here with us.

Love YOU!!!

Astro Talks with Satori: Leo/Aquarius

Since Leo feels at the center: everybody wants me, and Aquarius feels at the edge, the fringe: nobody wants me, the question they ask or the theme of the polarity is:

What is the role of the individual in society?

In changing society, do you work from personal (Leo) or impersonal (Aquarius) truths?

Do you (Leo) change one life at a time, as many as can see you, from the stage you are on?
Or do you (Aquarius) change the structure people inhabit.

Aquarius is ruled by both Saturn and Uranus. Structure and Change. Brake open the world and remake it.
In one sense, as the water-bearer, the “water” Aquarius carries is humanity itself and Aquarians are AND create the bucket. They build the form with which to carry the undifferentiated masses: us!


In both cases the Leo or Aquarius sets themselves apart from the masses through their individuality.
Leo from the heart, Aquarius from the mind

Are you a Rebel, (Aquarius) or a Star (Leo) ?

For Leo, status actually is a thing! Not only the bling of it, but the recognition.
Aquarians only want the recognition if for lack of a better word, they think it’s “cool”

When we say that Aquarius is the audience, what we mean is closer to the act of participation in a group event which has a meaningful impact. What remains unsaid, is that Aquarius is the one who stands out from that group, much as Leo does.

However the positioning is the polarity: Leo’s position is on stage from above as a star, Aquarius’ position is from within as one of the masses inseparable from the greater good.

Love YOU!!!

and go HERE TO SUPPORT

Aries

It’s not like the moon makes you more angry. You already know how angry you are. Secrets that emerge, sudden situations, whatever it is, it falls on you to be the teacher, to set the example.The emotional cost may be high, pay it. Whatever you find out is worth knowing.

Taurus

Surprise! I hope it doesn’t hurt, I mean really, though I won’t guarantee it. The fact that you have core values is an advantage. Your personal autonomy is one of them. Sexier than ever? Oh I think so! Who shows up for you? What do they ask?

Gemini

Don’t you hate it when your subconscious comes bursting through? If something has to change, the reasons are massive. Incontrovertible. Accept, adjust.

Crab

They love you alright, isn’t that part of where the sacrifice comes from? Mixed messages continue, that’s not the shock. I want to say what happens at home interferes with partnership, but that’s old news too.

The surprise comes in relationship to your hopes and dreams, and the resources you have to fulfill them.

LEO

It’s on your family axis. Mom and Dad, home and career, living situation and reputation.
Out of an abundance of caution, isn’t that the phrase we hear these days? Do that. Be that. Gentle as you can. Easy enough to twist your ankle if you talk on the phone while you hike. Be in one place at a time.

Virgo

Money comes in anyway, and the big question is, what are you finding out? What do they say? Information is elevation. It’s serious: get lifted.

Libra

You are still reworking the same material. Be prepared for a shock. These entanglements don’t end, all the same, you are learning what kinds of freedoms follow destruction.

Scorpio

Who lets go first? Which attachments keep you safe? And which can you barely tolerate? As you rework old thought patterns, you begin to see exactly which cords renew you and which you might cut, it’s for your own well-being.

Sagittarius

Oh it’s about to change now. Hopefully your habits, not just your health. Partnership doesn’t always come naturally to you, but you need it now. Let a friend do what they can.

Capricorn

Symbolically we see a creative baby born out of wedlock. What could that mean? You don’t trust many people these days, and honestly, why should you? You have an advantage though, people trust you.

Aquarius

The surprise is intimate.Where are you being called to go? This is grown up stuff, and if nothing else, you have certainly become an adult, recognize, enjoy, and respect yourself.

Pisces

Your existence itself is the magic we need. Listen up: your Full Moon message is very stark. I don’t think you need me to tell you how to read it. Let me tell you something else instead: you don’t have to do a thing until you are ready, and when you are ready, no one can stop you.

Love YOU!!!!

Taurus Full Moon, October 31, 2020

Last night while we ate dinner, myself, my children and their friend, (all eating a very large greek salad, so large that we couldn’t even finish it,) my son reminded me that there still exists and circulates an internet advertisement that more than likely you have seen.

It reads – A man baked an egg in an avocado, and what happens next will blow your tits clean off! –

If that could happen, I suppose it will happen now. Or maybe the one about how doctors hate it if you eat this certain fruit.

Jonathan Galassi wrote a poem called Once:

Once
the train has left the
station you can’t take it.
Once the promise has been
broke you can’t unbreak it.
If the letter has been sent
you can’t rewrite it.
If the cigarette’s been smoked
you can’t not light it.
Now the candle’s snuffed
you can’t see by it.
Once the seat’s been sold
no one can buy it.
The phone is disconnected:
don’t talk to it.
The window’s painted black;
you won’t see through it.
The scotch tape end is lost,
you can’t unwind it.
The earring’s in the lake;
you’ll never find it.
And now the money’s squandered—
you can’t give it
back. And time is short;
you have to live it.

The chart of this full Moon in Taurus has Sagittarius rising, so it’s a story. Because the south node is in Sagittarius we start at the end and work our way back, all the way back, to a beginning.

If you want a change, and you do, we do, we are.

It seems there are some clear winners and losers here, like a plot involving a big sports game, or an event where one has already picked a side.

You know what you want to happen, and then something happens. Only we can’t be sure, or I mean to say, how can we identify what strength our position holds?

At dinner, we briefly discussed the Napoleonic wars, and how backward, to some, those wars might have seemed at the time. Who wanted to be ruled by this little man after they had already fought a revolution?

Saturn squares Mercury: someone is trying to shut you up, or someone(s) are trying to silence a larger group of people. Perhaps information regarding that silencing comes to light.

Right along with that, the news could be financial. A shock regarding the money situation of those in power. A shock regarding your own finances.
Subtraction, a removal or shock so large it looks like a baby being born. Because that’s what happens, you can’t stay in there forever. But, it could be a job offer, the time you quit. When someone leaves for good, or I mean to say, arrives.

Use the shock to make a connection.

The sky of the Full Moon in Taurus is so stark as to look plainly and simply mechanical. A metronome that only tics one way, a wind up clock that takes us into a time we seem to be avoiding.

Who would like to? Wouldn’t you like to crawl right out of your skin, somehow give it the slip?

That’s this time. And we want that, to slip away, even as we want to have powered through, to push ahead, to have been here already, and now be somewhere else. Let’s get to the good part. The good part, the good part. Whatever that means, whatever that means for you at this time.

As I write this, I’m listening to my little dog scratch at the tile floor under my bed. She needs to do that, and she does it all the time, so it’s softer, so she can rest.

Since the sky needs to open up and crack, let’s suggest that the sky does exactly that in the way she can crack. Let’s suggest that the crack ticks the clock, the clock moves our hands, and we do not stay in the safety of our malaise, but journey out to something bigger, a new storyline, a larger arc.

– Barbara Brown Taylor sez: Darkness is not something you go through. It is God’s home.-

Under the bright Moon light and in the safety of God’s home, we breathe together with all of the unseen animals, the actual creature filled holy darkness we live in, brimming with every sort of life.

Let’s breathe into it, into the limitless vibrations of the molecules with which we are entangled, as ever indivisible from the limitless power of creation.

In every conceivable imagining, we are here in this place, together.

I’m so glad you are alive and breathing here with us.

Love YOU!!!

Simple ‘Scopes & A Podcast: Libra New Moon October 16, 2020

Listen UP

And go HERE to support!

Aries

It’s you taking aim, and also you, sharpening your knife, and it’s you addressing old grievances, and it’s you bravely, and humbly, hoping your heroism has merit. As new information emerges, use every bit of your understanding. Action not reaction.

Taurus

New levels of love, of money, of work? Since you know you don’t have the whole picture, or all of the information, there is no rush to commit. Enjoy the attention. Allow doors to open, as many as you like.

Gemini

The world is not exactly arranged for your pleasure at the moment, except for one little thing, and that thing IS arranged not only to please you, but to help you please yourself. Create.

Crab

I got you something! It’s a Cardinal T-square! With so much weight falling on you from so many directions, don’t push yourself. Accept yourself. When you hear new information, you think new thoughts. Close your eyes and ask for guidance. Listen.

LEO

The threads in your life maybe don’t want to be woven into a so-called rich tapestry. Maybe they just like being threads. News from home? Put it in context wherever you can find some. Let go of this idea of absolutes. A new connection with community expands your mind.

Virgo

If someone offers you a job, you can always say yes and figure it out later. The details are certainly not set. If something is making you uncomfortable, think about WHY. There is so much to know here. You have protection, so open to your own perception and see what you know.

Libra

This one is for you! Of course it hurts and of course you will use all of your skills to navigate. Begin where you can, by doing what you think is right. As blood and secrets are spilled, keep two things close to your heart. One is that you have an angel in your corner, the other, that this story and what you are learning, is not even kind of over.

Scorpio

What is it you’re not saying… yet? If you get a shock, consider that you may also be shocking. Your place in the community is not at stake. Don’t guard your resources, they truly are inexhaustible.

Sagittarius

That sinking feeling that you don’t know all the details? That’s because you don’t know all the details. Important people think well of you. They want what’s best for your wallet. Participate and let the story develop.

Capricorn

– Never a moment’s peace in centuries- that’s what Mrs Underwood says in John Crowly’s novel Little BIG. Don’t you feel it tho? The thing is, peace is not what you need. What you need is EVOLUTION.

Aquarius

How come creation, romance and tragedy have to come so tightly twined? The ground IS trembling under your feet, but you of all people don’t want to stand still. In the future, not even so far from now, you will walk through these doors that you see standing open before you. Messy as they are, these responsibilities are an honor.

Pisces

Love, Sex, Money, or other entanglements are on offer, of course it all comes with strings. If you don’t know how you feel, I would say that’s more than justified. Let the story come to you. Nothing you learn will be wasted.

Love YOU!!!

Libra New Moon October 16, 2020

Out in the open. Right out where everyone can see it. Push has in fact come to shove. Conflict rich. Libra competes or compares.

Although the conflict, the contract, the ALLIANCE is public, there are more than a few unfinished machinations behind the scenes. Libra would like to begin with a new balance of power. Expert negotiations ? YES PLEASE

Some people would like to know ahead of time if all of these difficulties are going to be worth it? What do you think we should tell them?

Think of yourself as a composer. Do something with how you feel.

Critic Karol Irzykowski said – Anything can be lived through to the end, nothing can be thought through to the end.-

The sky organizes itself a little bit, and there may be a sort of confession or surprise message.
A destiny element takes shape.

The inevitability quotient is massive now, what can’t be avoided must become the plot. Not only in bad ways!

Are you building new structural relationships in the hopes that they will carry you into the future?

Are you reconfiguring your entanglements? Is it time to change something about who you owe and how you pay them, who you care for, who cares for you? Is it time to change something about who you trust?

Are you beginning a new sort of relationship? With your world, your life?

Our New Moon in Libra features a Grand Trine in Earth. 6 planets coordinate.
What could they be up to?

The best use of your energy centers around that amplified Venus in Virgo

We arrange the anatomy. Actual chess moves. The frustration level is high. Place your pieces with care.

What we see is our circumstance. Or maybe we see some of it?

Where are you going?

The truth of it is, you can’t see that bit yet.

You can see where you WANT to go, what you want to be true.

But that’s not the same thing, is it?

Geoffrey DeGraff wrote
– Samsara literally means “wandering-on.” Many people think of it as the Buddhist name for the place where we currently live. But in the early Buddhist texts, it’s the answer, not to the question, “Where are we?” but to the question, “What are we doing?” Instead of a place, it’s a process: the tendency to keep creating worlds and then moving into them. As one world falls apart, you create another one and go there. At the same time, you bump into other people who are creating their own worlds, too.
The process can sometimes be enjoyable. In fact, it would be perfectly innocuous if it didn’t entail so much suffering. The worlds we create keep caving in and killing us. Moving into a new world requires effort: not only the pains and risks of taking birth, but also the hard knocks – mental and physical – that come from going through childhood into adulthood, over and over again.- —

What we start now is in relationship to what has already been. What we start now, we start compelled by fear and opportunity in equal measure. What we start now, has love at it’s worried little heart.

We would like to be doing the right thing.

Here is one from filmmaker -David Lynch:

-I don’t think that people accept the fact that life doesn’t make sense. I think it makes people terribly uncomfortable. It seems like religion and myth were invented against that, trying to make sense out of it. –

And that’s an interesting thought for someone like Lynch who makes art which describes and organizes experience.

Our experience of the New Moon in Libra is going to speak for itself. Also you might dredge up something to say.

Mercury goes back. She wants to open that delicious looking can of worms.
Should you watch your mouth? Sure, watch it. Words these days are very sharp. Don’t cut at random. Dotted lines only.

Do speak up though. Doing something is going to be infinitely superior to trying to hold this energy. Make a conscious choice. You probably have some pretty strong feelings. Now is a chance to set your intention, to use them for good.

Whatever the negotiation, try, if you are at all able, to keep an ultimatum free zone.

-Terror is as much a part of the concept of truth as runniness is of the concept of jam. We wouldn’t like jam if it didn’t, by its very nature, ooze. We wouldn’t like truth if it wasn’t sticky, if, from time to time, it didn’t ooze blood.- Jean Baudrillard said that, and I’ll say it too.


To keep your balance, do what is practical.

We have had a lot of quotes this time, I’ll add one more

Italo Calvino writes:

-A person’s life consists of a collection of events, the last of which could also change the meaning of the whole, not because it counts more than the previous ones but because once they are included in a life, events are arranged in an order that is not chronological but, rather, corresponds to an inner architecture.-

Can you take a breath now?

Can you take a moment to remember how very inseparable we are? Very, very close and with room for everyone, for the microcosm of the worlds inside your body, all your cells, busy, moving, alive, the tiny things, blades of grass and the ants who populate that territory, these planets that we talk about, it’s fun to remember that they are actually physically massive and spinning in space.

Everything in motion, inexplicably linked and alive. Let’s take another breath, as precarious as it all is, it’s still so good to feel the air come in and out of our bodies. I’m so glad you are alive and breathing here with us.

Love YOU!!!

XoX
