You have the Power. Isn’t that nice to hear? I’ll say it again. YOU HAVE THE POWER. You have the power in this situation, and what you can do here, in the immortal words of Lyn Collins is “Use what you got, to get what you want.” there is a catch, and she does point it out. You’d better THINK
This really isn’t your favorite type of weather. God, the multiverse, even your previous good deeds and kind acts, they are all looking out for you. You’ll see how before too long. Let yourself have that ethereal embrace. What’s hidden will be brought to light before April is over.
Don’t hold your breath, let it come to you. You may be very busy, and a gift is yours to receive. Accept it. Getting your way is not the burden it might seem.
Unsteady doesn’t mean disabled, and don’t you let it mean dysfunctional! Return yourself to yourself. You are needed, so gather yourself in. If you are a home to yourself, you can be a light in the sky.
Is it GO TIME? Well is it??! Is it time for far flung beginnings? Go ahead and realize everything you know. That will help. You need your intuition for this one too. It’s not a matter of logic, instead, it’s one of ethics and action.
The vaults are practically bursting at the seams. Such riches!! That’s a lot of intimate action for one little Virgo. Value what you have been given. Open up. Accept and respect the depth.
My my my my my… you do seem to be outgunned. The offer is not one of violence but rather a truce if you can accept it. Look at what begins under this sky. It’s not something you have seen before.
You certainly look busy!! So busy! Between the new work/new home deep renovation of your work life balance, and all the tasks that come to mind, it seems what you might need is some mind/body connection. Sex if possible, if not whatever comes closest. Don’t spend money you don’t have.
Could it be party time?! I mean… could we work that in? Is art possible? Play time? Pleasure? It’s a reboot. Don’t pretend it’s not. Use every bit of the joy you find. You are not bad, and you do deserve it. Clarity is overrated.
You are world building, and it’s been a minute since we could say anything like that. It’s not only the old tear down company tricks and consequences…. Use what comes to you now, to build a world. Make it. A new home, a better mousetrap. Overthinking and detailed analysis is not allowed.
Have you just had a genius idea?? Or a new understanding? A new way with your siblings or surroundings? You don’t have to know if you WILL use it yet, or HOW you will use it. Ok come on you are going to use it somehow. This is pretty great.
Let’s breathe life into your harmony. Let’s send cash to your bank. Let’s have everyone recognize just how good you really are. Let’s have that everyone include you. You don’t have to do anything yet. You can just HAVE this. and then if you DO have to do something, stay flexible… keep listening.
“To those who do not know that the world is on fire, I have nothing to say.”
Compulsive, powerful, karmic, difficult. Promises will be made. Promises will be made with every intention of keeping them. It’s not clear if we do the right thing… but I do think we try.
It may take a bit of a struggle to tune into what that looks like, push past ghosts and false feelings into our deep luck, our right mind. One could make a fairly large blunder here in terms of what should be done… or do the right thing with no grace at all. Nothing here looks like a permanent tragedy tho. We are in motion, we are making a way to move.
The obvious next steps are a bit clumsy but the feeling is there. It’s genuine.
Gather yourself together. The rest of the year is hard. Honestly.
Not hard every minute of every hour of every day, but hard. It’s not been easy, and the overall feeling now, is to ask reality to cut us a break. One way or another way… it just doesn’t do that.
So that’s news. Let’s take a moment to let that one in. Everything does not straighten out and fly right. Not for all of 2021. I mean… there are moments better than other moments, certainly.
and yet… I think it’s important to establish here that this is a year of conflict, of challenge.
Let’s look at it, now that we really are in it. Aries season.
The zodiac has begun one more time. What does it do? What do we do?
Are we fighting? Are we loving?
What in the wide world of desperation and random happenstance is supposed to, is going to, maybe could possibly ummmmmm… happen?
With so much Aquarian energy, it’s easier to say what won’t happen! Aquarius is the rebel, defiant, a subtraction, lightning, a surprise.
What won’t happen?
You won’t be able to move in a sequential straight line without a lot of conflict.
We even get a little magic over the summer as Jupiter enters Pisces and grants some watery wishes, but most of the time… I said MOST OF THE TIME, we have to fight for it, surrender, cope, pray, and work.
Actually just do the work. Network too.. It’s not a year to be so isolated as we have been… but in a way… in a very sharp and cutting way, we are all on our own.
So what about this beginning then? What about our New Moon at 22 degrees Aries?
Mercury at 14 degrees Aries hovers near Chiron at 9. Venus at 26 degrees Aries blesses us with a sextile from an Aquarian Jupiter at 25. We are able to feel what we desire now, and we may even be able to say it.
Saturn slows but does not stop the conversation, a sextile to Mars in Gemini encourages direct action. Maybe a couple of direct actions… a confusion of direct actions like a murder of crows. Pluto does square that Venus and what comes to mind is the idea of not being provoked.
Actually what comes to mind is being provoked.
Being provoked and using that provocation to tell you something about your hotspots, rather than letting yourself be drawn into situations that you know are not what you want.
Respond, don’t react.
Give yourself time to breathe and sit, with whatever is happening for you.
As you take a moment, allow some inner acumen to tell you the difference between what’s deep, compelling, sexy, or enjoyably taboo, and what may be manipulative, selfish, and all lizard brain, no compassion.
Mars does square Neptune here; if you are not quite sure what to do, write about it, sing about it, listen to music, go for a walk, take a bath, a swim, get out your tarot cards, consult an astrologer…
Your confusion as to the next steps may be a catalyst, and that catalyst may be needed to get you where you want to go.
Here is one from Michael Barata:
– Don’t move like you are chasing or being chased. Move like you are caught in the most beautiful moment, which is right now.-
There is nothing more Aries than the concept of -right now-
Right now, let’s take a breath together. Let’s be here, where we actually are.
In whatever space these words find you, that’s the right space to be.
There are no meaningful separations between your molecules and the molecules that surround you. As breath enters your body, it becomes you and what sustains you. Over and over.
I’m so glad you are alive and breathing, here with us.
You may feel a pinch. I do believe this is what it takes to be effective. Enemies and partners of all kinds are highlighted for this one. The truth is not exactly on display, so don’t expect it. Not yet.
You gotta be wondering what’s happening behind the scenes… I mean you really really do… Work, Health, Career… and make money, make money… that’s where your eyes are. Your heart? Your heart is asking for a dream.
You do have the power. Play fair. The world turns on your axis this week. Don’t lose sleep over what you hear. It will all come out in the wash.
These are pretty big undercurrents. Head up, keep swimming. We are not going to forecast the entire rest of our lives from this moment. Self control. Do your bit. Let the chips fall, and wait and see who cleans up.
What’s going on with your travel plans or future goals? Despite confusion something is pulling you forward. It’s a bit like the awkward stage of a haircut, it’s going to grow out into something beautiful. Time is emphasized… take time.
Monetary tipping point? or is it more about priorities? Don’t believe everything you are told. What is the point of what is owed. To whom do you align yourself? Where are you connected?
If you want to lose your temper, and you might want to… regarding romance, regarding children, regarding your creations… Let someone else do it for you. This is not at all the end of the story. What’s beautiful is seeing you play the right cards at the right time. It looks confused, but it’s not.
Keep a notebook by your bed this week and see if you can capture your dreams… There is plenty you are trying to tell yourself. How you share what you have is fundamental, you may be able to meet whatever needs you decide are important. Give yourself a minute to assess.
Still uncertain where home is, not even sure if you need to know. You may not. You seem to have given a bit of your power away, and I wonder how you like that? For sure you are learning something worth knowing. The small picture has the details, and Keys are often quite small.
It’s a Vulnerability versus Accomplishment: hand to hand combat death match, per usual. Try something different. Since you know you don’t know, don’t guess, just breathe. Don’t conclude, keep living the questions.
Ok sure your boat is still rocking, but these choppy seas are taking you to some sort of island, and it does appear you have a hot air balloon or helicopter or something… you’re not free, but you are in motion, and soon you will be stronger because you haven’t given up.
What’s your vision? And where is the money? Try to craft a view of the future as wide as a bridge and as solid. Make a good long one with spots along the way to rest and sleep. This transition is not only a fairytale, it’s a symbolic landscape.
p.s. this one goes out to Pisces Merc/Neptune go ‘head and click on over to youtube so you can watch this!
Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence.
~ Lin Yutang said that.
Sometimes you have to fight for what is right, and if it turns out that you do that now, exercise self control. The Moon, Mars, and Saturn trine. That’s deliberate. Deliberate conduct, controlled emotion.
Mars sits on the north node. A turning point. We are vessels for a kind of karmic equilibrium action plan.
It’s an Air trine, a balance of rules, regulations, activity and emotion.
The Sun, Chiron, and Venus are together: only authenticity, only originality, and they manage a sextile to both Saturn and our Mars/North node. A kite takes shape. What happens moves the plot. Let’s not begrudge the second act of our play it’s defining characteristics.
A conflict, a conundrum, pain, an incongruity, something of a power move is made. Like is pitted against desire or even need. I like olives, but I need to share them with you, or you won’t like me. And I need that. I need you to like me or at least to find me fair.
Meeting your own needs versus the needs of a partner could easily figure. Remember to represent your actual wishes, and as you do that, think, how can I harmonize?
It’s possible you don’t know what you want.
Listen for what God(s) would tell you if only they could.… they can… maybe…Listen:
Something about the structure of time. About how, whatever shows up for you, you will ultimately integrate.
It may be a tiny bit confusing… Just know that compassion is never outdated & you don’t know all there is to know… Not yet.
Mercury conjuncts Neptune, lies may be spread, rumours. I don’t think they will be effective, and you don’t let them work on you, emkay?
In fact, use some of that Pisces Neptune blurriness to soften whatever inevitable interpersonal drama, sacrifice, or shadow puppet work seems to cloud the proceedings. You are not supposed to worry. It won’t help.
Listen now to Mark Twain’s longevity advice on his 70th birthday, in 1905:
– I have achieved my seventy years in the usual way: by sticking strictly to a scheme of life which would kill anybody else. It sounds like an exaggeration, but that is really the common rule for attaining to old age. When we examine the programme of any of these garrulous old people we always find that the habits which have preserved them would have decayed us; that the way of life which enabled them to live upon the property of their heirs so long, as Mr. Choate says, would have put us out of commission ahead of time. I will offer here, as a sound maxim, this: That we can’t reach old age by another man’s road.-
Be real with yourself for this one, and as needed, we may also be evasive, charismatic, and opaque. You do what you gotta do. If it comes down to it, you know the drill: Always Apologize, Never Explain.
Let’s think of this moon as playing out over the next few days after it happens. It’s not all clear in one go. I believe we adjust.
A pivotal day arrives on March 30th. Sudden choices regarding security and value, as the Moon Opposes Uranus, perhaps in some way we reject emotion, leave home.. and then on the 31st we put a bit of a bandaid on it. We begin to understand and move ahead with new compassion.
In the days after the Libra Full Moon we deepen our knowledge of what is necessary, and more especially what is true. As we arrive in April it’s beautiful action energy.
Think of this Full Moon moment as push to the next level, amid some general forced proceedings, alongside perhaps a bit of magic, compassion, or confusion.
What we know is that the next level is a place we do want to be. As we go on our way, it does come with a reveal… By the 5th or 6th of April, we shall know a thing or two about a thing or two worth knowing.
Here is a quote from Mary Oliver to send you on your way.
The god of dirt
came up to me many times and said
so many wise and delectable things; I lay
on the grass listening
to his dog voice,
frog voice; now
he said, and now,
and never once mentioned forever
In this now, in this moment, of this now, let’s be right here with each other. Just breathing, just breathing together. As we breathe let’s remember that there are no meaningful separations between the particles of your molecules and the particles of the molecules surrounding you.
No separation between the air that enters your body and your body itself. We are all becoming, we are infinitely entwined, interconnected, woven, we are the very fabric of the limitless power of creation. I’m so glad you are alive. I’m so glad you are here, alive and breathing with us.
Try to imagine things don’t turn out the way they usually do. You have a pretty solid window to effect the changes you want. It seems a dream, but it’s real now.
You can’t fix everything, but you do have help. Look around you. Sure you are spending money at an amazing clip, I imagine you are getting value. All the same don’t substitute things for principles.
The power of words! Plenty of support for publishing, expansion, even travel. How can you show the world how you feel?
Who you trust gets a restructure, as does where you are going. It’s a good idea to imagine open doors and landscapes. What looks ethical and kind?
Something being born in the deepest part of you. The most hidden spot. Your desire to merge is honestly beautiful, and there will be substantial partnerships if you want them.
Who is that looking at you with such love?Take care of your ordinary tasks, and they will take care of you.
If ongoing health problems have been an issue you should turn a corner now. Your engine is still revving a little hot. This may manifest as anger or depression. Both? Don’t discount what you can do with the love you have been given, just because it’s yours.
This looks like fun for you. Creatively, with children, with art, play becomes possible. And as you do it, a gift.
Home is where the heart is, and your heart is looking like a newly open flower. Protect this one, and all the creatures that live with her. But do it gently, she’s got to bloom.
If you open your mind to the best possible… not even outcomes, more like perspectives, there will be a gift that arrives as heightened perception. A change in awareness is change.
It could be financial, a blessing for you or someone else. The underlying story continues, can you bend some of your structures? Bend is better than break for you, though harder to believe in. Try it.
You waited this whole long time for us to come to you, even though you are at the heart. You can be who you want to be now. You don’t have to sell it, you are it. Power is already yours.
A very Pisces thought:
-But that’s what the real lie consists of, that’s the crime: lying to oneself, being in disharmony with one’s own truth, one’s own innermost knowledge of things, as revealed through one’s consciousness. Objectivity, in fact, means just this: to be in harmony with one’s own subjectivity, not to lie to oneself.— Eugene Ionesco
As we wait for the Pisces New Moon, let’s follow our Dark Moon protocols. Declutter, let go, surrender.
That said, don’t let yourself be pushed around. The Moon is in Capricorn today headed for Pluto, deep feelings and as they arrive give yourself a container to receive them in. The Moon today is pragmatic, focused, and sextile a Pisces Sun, quite caring.
Pisces New Moon, March 13 2021
It’s an umbrella. Or something like one. A little bit of a magic shelter. A kiss with a flavor of destiny. Something that needs to happen might just be able to happen.
Let’s start with a series of Pisces style quotes:
In The Poetics of Space, Gaston Bachelard writes:
…if I were asked to name the chief benefit of the house, I should say: the house shelters daydreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace. Thought and experience are not the only things that sanction human values. The values that belong to daydreaming mark humanity in its depths. Daydreaming even has a privilege of autovalorization. It derives direct pleasure from its own being. Therefore, the places in which we have experienced daydreaming reconstitute themselves in a new daydream, and it is because our memories of former dwelling-places are re-lived as daydreams that these dwelling-places of the past remain in us for all time.
John Koethe says
It’s where you are in your imagination that’s important, for the life of simply staying where you are is a shadow’s life, that leaves you by yourself, alone and scared. Why can’t we just move on? The light up ahead is soft, and seems to beckon us, glowing with a promise of beginning, once again, as if there were still time.
– Richard Jackson would like to tell us:
Is there any way we can purely touch the world again, the way
a salamander does, breathing through its skin? Can we
become the strands of this shrine we weave ourselves into?
Hoping to emerge into a world where – where what?
There is no end to desire, which means no end to regret,
no end to our need for an ending, so that even the sky refuses
our touch, that sky which, at its bluest, is the most empty.
– Jeff Foster says
Life will eventually bring you to your knees. Either you’ll be on your knees cursing the universe and begging for a different life, or you’ll be brought to your knees by gratitude and awe, deeply embracing the life that you have, too overwhelmed by the beauty of it all to stand or even speak. Either way, they’re the same knees.
And last, David Byrne writes: – I sense the world might be more dreamlike,
metaphorical, and poetic than we currently believe—but just as irrational
as sympathetic magic when looked at in a typically scientific way.
I wouldn’t be surprised if poetry—poetry in the broadest sense, in the
sense of a world filled with metaphor, rhyme, and recurring patterns,
shapes, and designs—is how the world works. The world isn’t logical, it’s a song.-
So now we know where we are. Deep Pisces. Where being lost is finding your place in the universe.
Where the New Moon at 23 degrees Pisces is conjunct Venus, who is exalted in Pisces, and conjunct Neptune, Pisces very own ruler. Our Sun and Moon sextile Pluto, and Square the Nodes. That’s a destiny and power activation combo.
It’s a beginning marked with stardust. There is a glimmer about it, but on account of Pluto what takes place will be very real. Saturn trines Mars, who gets the go ahead from Chiron. Jupiter (the old ruler of Pisces) trines the North Node. A way will be found.
This is door opening energy.
We are permeable at this time, so be gentle to yourself and others. Whatever is said, cast it in the best light, or if you need to, set it aside.
If there is something you want, ask for it on the 13th or within a day or two after. Don’t wait. Just try. Prayers and intentions are always good for a New Moon, but in this case you may want to open the floodgates, to dream, to imagine, to let something happen or even to make a move.
When I look at the chart of this New Moon, I see wish fulfillment. Whose wish? I wish I knew. You know the line of the song, “You’ve got to have a dream, or how you gonna make a dream come true?” If you don’t have a dream, one may come to you now. And if you don’t need one, perhaps your wish is for someone else…
Put yourself in a place where you feel protected. Allow yourself to feel really open to what is possible. It’s a cosmic kissing booth. You don’t know what sort of kiss it will be, but this transitory moment appears to be arranged for your benefit. If you open yourself to it, if you participate, perhaps something good will begin.
The New Moon in Pisces on March 13 2021 is a particularly good time to allow for, and enjoy your inescapable connection to reality, to the infinite mystery and limitless power of creation. The strangeness of it! The gentle peculiarity, the sweetness of a wish, contained in the very construct of wishing. ~I wish you all the very best.~
And as we wish, let’s envision let’s be aware now that there are no meaningful separations between the vibrations of your molecules and the vibrations of the molecules surrounding you.
In whatever we encounter, let’s bring our whole selves, our entire moving and breathing multiverse of interconnected particles. Let’s be together now, and take a breath. I’m so glad you are alive and breathing here with us.
It’s kind of pretty, this one, and for a change our lunation doesn’t seem to be centered in pain. Not that pain or endings won’t be present for some, but if you are experiencing a loss, the potential for growth arrives in that moment or immediately after.
This quote is religious in nature, but Richard Rohr makes a very strong point:
– Once we have learned to discern the real, disguised nature of both good and evil, we recognize that everything is broken and fallen, weak and poor, while still being the dwelling place of God—you and me, your country, your children, your churches, even your marriage. That is not a put-down, but finally a freedom to love imperfect things! As Jesus told the rich young man, “God alone is good!” (Mark 10:18). In this, you may have been given the greatest recipe for happiness for the rest of your life. You cannot wait for things to be totally perfect to fall in love with them or you will never love anything. Now, instead, you can love everything. –
The set up in the sky looks like a loving heart, it looks like capable hands. repositioning both reasonable and radical. It looks functional and deeply motivated though perhaps not expected.
When I look at this chart through my Virgo-vision I think of carrying a plant outside, and the pot breaks, and in a magical time lapse sort of way, the plant begins to grow directly into the earth.
We are given the go ahead here. Venus is newly in Pisces, and although we are working with major change energy, there is gentleness to it. Whatever becomes visible to you, whatever GIANT ALTERATIONS are at work, (I’m looking at you Saturn Square Uranus) as Virgo turns on the moonbeams, our revelations or conclusions are still bathed in that softness.
It’s practical somehow, and a little bit dreamy. Taurus Mars trines Capricorn Pluto. The Earth movers are reshaping our landscape.
First Step by Robin Heerens Lysne
are sometimes foggy.
The path is not always clear.
The end of one begets another.
To begin, put one foot
in front of the other.
Your foot knows where to land,
the one that moves forward first.
Forget about the best foot.
Just put it out there.
Stop traffic if you have to.
Go home if that is where it leads you.
Go back to work
if that is where your foot falls.
You don’t have to
After you step,
Forget about the weather.
I want to say that springtime is almost here… but is it? Is it really? I guess it depends on where you live, but there is a certain amount of unlocking taking place now. Not everything is frozen tight.
Let’s take a breath together
Let’s be exactly where we are, right HERE. HERE where there are no genuine separations between any of us, no separations between the vibrations of your molecules and the vibrations of all the molecules surrounding you. We are connected, endlessly entwined, infinitely inseparable from the limitless power of creation.
I’m so glad to be connected to you. I’m so glad that you are alive and breathing, here with us.
I’ve been thinking about this time: this new terrestrial year of the Metal Ox, this Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius, and I think that this time can be used as though fixing a dropped stitch in the fabric of creation.
I wrote this for The Starshine Show:
New Moon in Aquarius February 11, 2021
The good news is that it’s good. Or that we can make it good from here.That 2021 is a more tangible, more insightful, more hardworking year than the last one. There are no shortages of surprises, but to each happenstance or deliberate maneuver, we can immediately apply ourselves, and eventually see our progress reflected back.
It takes a backbone, this particular year, and in order to be able to work it right, continue to listen. Don’t be sure you have the answers. These are BIG questions.
Our stories unravel, they unwind, wind back around, unfold, multiply, evaporate. The size, shape, and proportion of what we measure will morph as we do the measuring!
So many, so many deep and beautiful surprises. It’s been a minute since we imagined that a surprise could be good, but we will have some shocking good ones along with the shocking bad ones in 2021, AND for our New Moon in Aquarius on February 11, the year of the Metal Ox.
It IS good. I’m not quite sure it’s a floating fairy godmother in a powder blue dress, but as it compares to 2020 it almost is. In part it’s good, because it’s new.
A surprise is guaranteed. There is a kiss, and a dream, or a lie, a chance to go back and fix an old storyline.
This new Moon, in this year, is where we begin to correct our mistakes, which as you know, sometimes involves making more of them.
I think it’s a doozy, and you may not know yet what is involved or even how much, how many… but believe me, you will stumble into it, OR it will be made clear to you. Let’s welcome that type of energy. A course correction without shame.
A beginning, perhaps a sort of birth, and the baby is a changeling, and the changeling is rare and special, and you do in fact take on a mission without knowing all it will entail.
Perhaps only really being aware, that you can’t know what will be required of you.
Let’s imagine now, that it will be a lot! It will. A real lot. A WHOLE lot.
A large protracted effort, willpower will be required, but this time our lives are not, thank goodness, set amidst the desperate plutonian survialscape so many of us inhabited last year. It’s not even that the desperation is gone, it’s simply that it’s unworthy of our full attention. We are cultivating more powerful problems.
2021 requires us to believe in the future, to exercise endurance, commitment, and a certain type of bravery that is willing to make an alliance. Be ready now to discard whatever is actively harming you, to move as fast as you can in the direction of sanity, of wholeness, and as you do it, recognize that tho there will be enormous leaps ahead and beautiful vistas, on the whole, your progress is not about fast.
Committed. That’s the word you want. Commit, and keep an open mind.
Why? Because you can’t see now, you can’t just see all of it…
The future is shaping itself strangely, into absolutely fresh configurations, and as it happens, as you move ahead with plans and choices, your beginnings may emerge under blurry impressions, almost a shadow or storm that could be described as an inadequate or misleading series of truths, and yet, and yet, and yet… there are truths, these are truths here, aren’t they?
Whatever is said now, and however peaceable it may seem, the words begin or continue a conflict, a passionate complex conflicted storyline, which will take you traveling one way or another.
It’s not simple and it doesn’t end any time soon. It’s blessedly new. Can we let that be enough?
Rainbow weather, that half stormy sky with the bright blue corner, & the soft light spot where the sky becomes gentle white, there, anything is possible, is probable.
A place where light is likely to separate colors into their spectrums and allow us to see, not only a fleeting vision of wonder, of what is possible, but also to understand what necessary elements are contained within the whole: Who is here?
We all are: we are working, breathing, we are living, and hoping, desiring, and surviving at the gate to an opening, an entrance, just to the side, an alternate timeline. Isn’t it time we were getting out of here… Have you got to the pot of gold?
Not so fast. In fact not very fast at all. The Ox is a plodder and this year we cope with sudden shifts in our realities that we must then bear the burden of in extended real time ordeals. And YET and yet…
John Crowley writes:
“It was a rainbow, but bright and it looked like it came down -just there, you know, not far; I could see the grass, all sparkling and stained every color there. The sky had got big, you know the way it does when it clears after a long rainy time, and everything looked near; the place the rainbow came down was near; and I wanted to go stand in it and look up and be covered with colors. Smokey laughed. “ That’s hard.” He said. She laughed too, dipping her head and raising the back of her hand to her mouth in a way that already seemed heartstirringly familiar to him. “It sure is.” She said. “It seemed to take forever.” “You mean you-” “Every time you thought you were getting close, it would be just as far off in a different place; and if you came to that place it would be in the place you came from; and my throat was getting sore with running, and not getting any closer. But you know what you do then-” “Walk away from it.” He said surprised at his own voice, but Somehow sure this was the answer. “Sure. That isn’t as easy as it sounds but–” “No I don’t suppose.” He had stopped laughing. “–but if you do it right–” “No wait” He said
“–just right, then…” “They don’t really come down now.” Smokey said, “They don’t, not really” “ “They don’t here.” She said. —
Our HERE is about to change.
A chance to make a wish, or set sail, plant a seed. Do that. We are going to have to change EVERYTHING.
That’s what we learn this year, but we don’t do it every minute of every hour of every day. A big shift followed by a lot of hard work, followed by an unveiling, a dismantling, a shock, or revelation. Each with a gift. Believe it. We will see this. We will live it.
In astrology we talk about Chiron as the bridge between Saturn and Uranus. Between Genius and Matter, between the past and the future, we have Chiron, a bridge shaped as a couple: humility married to self worth. It’s where doubt becomes irrelevant, not out of faith, but because of understanding, trust in oneself mixed with a thirst for genuine knowledge.
A key made not of dogged consistency, but of wide eyed continuation. Every morning you wake up and build the world anew in your heart, that beginning, that willingness to see all that is open to you in this moment, takes you further. You wake up, again, and again, and again.
“Just as a lamp waved in darkness creates a figure of light in the air, which remains for as long as the lamp repeats its motion exactly, so the universe retains its shape by repetition: the universe is Time’s body.” -John Crowley
Good Morning is what I want to say to you as we welcome a New Year. Wherever Aquarius falls in your chart, you will have a chance to rewrite the story no matter what has come before this day.
Let’s take a breath together now. Let’s really feel how connected we are to each other, to the limitless delight, to the infinite power and possibility of all of creation. I’m so glad to be connected to you, I’m so happy you are alive and breathing, here with us.
Synthesize what you know about dedication, what you know about holistic commitment, ground yourself in that knowledge and find a release.
Are you the instigator? Very unlike you… and yet there looks to be an opportunity here, an opening, high drama? So what!
Even if it’s not your fireworks you can for sure enjoy the show! Mercury is about to retrograde, but this Full Moon gives you something new that you can fully launch after February 20th.
Looks like you are on the receiving end of some genuine big dick energy. Could be fun, and jokes aside, what takes place under the Full Moon may be meaningful. It does penetrate.
It’s more than a glow up, it’s a moment of powerful self expression. Pressure? CERTAINLY. Show up as you wish. Bring your whole self with you.
Sometimes letting go is a style of opening up. There is a big wind blowing through you. Let it happen.
You won’t be bored. Something is happening at home, or with your dependents, something is happening, creatively or romantically, money, sex, or secrets factor in, and it’s all on a backdrop of your hopes and dreams. Use the energy. You do have goals!
What kind of message do you receive? Act. Don’t react. This is a MASSIVE energy exchange, use it to get what you want, not sting your own foot.
It looks like you might have somewhere to go! If you are feeling boxed in, open your mind and let that wild horse run around a bit. Do that before you open your mouth.
It’s a pivotal moment. Don’t let that scare you. Sometimes Capricorn Climbers hate to be stuck and love to hate it. This is not about stuck. Let yourself pivot.
The Sun conjuncts Jupiter in your sign. Lots of pressure, perhaps a crisis but a door opens wide, despite, or because of it. This is one where you don’t always know when you are having good luck.
If you hear something that knocks you off balance, is it possible what within that conflict there is a seed of what you want more than anything else?
The Full Moon at 9 degrees LEO across from the Aquarius Sun/Jupiter conjunction is violent, high drama, potent, accident prone & too, with Pluto conjunct Venus, it’s potentially heartfelt, sad, traumatic, destructive, and nearly as revelatory as any moment we have seen in recent history.
That said, does it seem to be getting lighter in here?
Are you able to stop arguing with reality and simply cope? Can you open every door you find, without running down the halls or backing away? Can you allow whatever is in there to reveal itself? No rush to judgment. Just turn the key.
As you open these doors, are you also opening the doors to what you habitually hide from yourself, your own elaborate and finely tuned clockwork mechanisms?
Can you use Aquarian energy to decode pattern languages, internal landscapes, whatever fragments and puzzle pieces you have stored behind the infamous door number 3?
Suppose we come apart, and suppose that we continue to live.
In Sum, a collection of fictional stories about the afterlifes, David Eagleman writes,
– …when you die, you are grieved by all the atoms of which you were composed. They hung together for years, whether in sheets of skin or communities of spleen. With your death they do not die. Instead, they part ways, moving off in their separate directions, mourning the loss of a special time they shared together, haunted by the feeling that they were once playing parts in something larger than themselves, something that had its own life, something they can hardly put a finger on.-
Is it possible that as everything crumbles and falls, as we forgo the concept of genuine safety, we might possibly begin to make our way through this unsafe world, one way, or another way, or some way we find after that.
Discarding the idea of an end point is one of the most generous things you can offer yourself at this time.
The brilliance and flexibility we need may actually be available to us.
There is plenty of random, and less and less mirage.
Experimental, direct, accidental, unmediated, we are all of it: fluid, in some cases unfocused, unsure, at a juncture that is no longer a crossroads, but more of a cross section. It’s an entanglement, a multiplicity.
From this integrated perspective on our habitat we can emerge with a simpler style of interaction.
Abandon judging the optics of any given situation. Well, you might consider the optics if others will use them to get in your way, but no more thinking about
-If I do this what does it mean about me?-
That way of thinking is done like dinner gets done. IT’S DONE. This, all of this, even your own life “this” is not about you in that way. You are not writing a story with your life that is currently decipherable to you, by you…
You may be, you should be writing a story with your life that is beginning to be interesting to you.
You have a stake in the outcome, but what it says about you, what it means?
What’s on offer now is sudden and occasional clarity, frequent confusion, an abundance of perspectives that don’t resolve into immediately actionable steps, along with questionable and immediately actionable steps that stem from pure necessity, precision within chaos, emotional upheaval or wounding, frustration, and a genuine chance to exercise self control. Why? Because crisis, that’s why.
It’s blood and guts for this one! Newsflash: self control is not anyone’s favorite exercise, no matter what type of fitness freak you are.
All the same, it feels fantastic when you nail it. You CHOOSE your response. No need to fake a single thing. Don’t light up any bridge you don’t want burnt all the way down. Strategy should be pragmatic. Use it.
Richard Sicken writes –
-Imagine that the world is made out of love. Now imagine that it isn’t. Here is a story where everything goes wrong, here is a story where everyone has their back against the wall, here is a story where everyone is in pain and acting selfishly because if they don’t, they’ll die. Here is a story, not of good and evil, but of need against need against need, where everyone is at cross-purposes and everyone is to blame. How are you supposed to fall asleep to this?-
That’s just it. You are not supposed to fall asleep to this, and you mustn’t believe that it is possible to know what the world is made of. It’s all true isn’t it? In that same essay Sicken sez:
– The Dali Lama says we are born in bliss and Jesus says we are born in sin. Who are you going to believe?-
Let’s propose once more that we stop arguing with reality, that we cope practically, perhaps ingeniously, turn the lock with the key. Don’t wait. Open the door. See who is inside.
Will you take a deep breath with me now? Can we be exactly where we are?
In the vibrations of your molecules and the vibrations of all the molecules surrounding you there are no genuine separations. You breathe in and what you need becomes part of you. We are endlessly connected, endlessly entwined, deeply and completely inseparable from the limitless power of creation. I’m so glad to be connected to you. I’m so glad that you are alive and breathing here with us.
*Knitting is something very interesting. It’s almost like knitting a web of the mind. I was blindfolding myself with a Kotex and knitting something that was going nowhere, while a man symbolizing our future was singing, “We all shine on”. Yes we will shine, but for that, we have to take the blindfold off and stop knitting. It was my way of showing what we women must free ourselves from. The blindfold means to me everybody in the world is blind and trying their best.’
